Product Description

Review

"A catalogue raisonne may sound daunting, but this is anything but a dry book. It displays the variety of Uglow's output: holiday landscapes, holiday nudes, small rough pictures, a handful of 'autobiographical' ones, which reveal unexpected sides to the tortured perfectionist we are more familiar with." -- The Spectator, September 8, 2007

'This is the first book devoted to Uglow and his oeuvre...Lampert looks at the content and personal nature of the artist's paintings over a lifetime, emphasizing his growing attention to color and light.' -- Pallant House Gallery Magazine, September 2007

...scrupulous and immensely informative...Even in the form of the
excellent colour reproductions in the book you can sense the glow of the
paint and the sensual warmth of the engagement with the subject. -- The Independent on Sunday, May 27, 2007

The arrival of Catherine Lampert's new catalogue raisonne of
Uglow's work whose exemplary texts (perceptive, lucid, factual, crisply
written) reveal the richness and significance of his painting, has rendered
his neglect inexcusable. -- RA Magazine, Summer 2007

`The book is excellent, a model, the balance of text and catalogue perfection, the illustrations as truthful as can be...' -- Brian Sewell, Evening Standard, 10 August 2007

Format: Hardcover
This is a very fitting tribute and long over due. Uglow is one of the great artists of our century. He does not get the press of Freud but is as good if not better in some ways. (Personal preference.) The images are reproduced to small. Having been spoiled with so many great art books with huge reproductions, there is little excuse in our day to put out anything less. The gold standard for art books for me is Xenia Hausner's Heart Matters. Fantastic, big reproductions. Uglow's book repoduces some of his very finest pieces at a fraction of the size, which really does a disservice. It still gets 5 stars because I will take whatever I can get. The essays are top notch. The Browse and Darby book is still available from the gallery and reproduces many of his great works at a more appropriate size. Get it to at the original price from the gallery. On top of all that, get the book Some Memories of the Painter by Susan Campbell which is also available from Browse and DArby. Great, great anecdotal info on Mr. Uglow. As far as I am concerned, some of the very best figurative work ever done is being produced in your country right now. Thanks in great part to the likes of Uglow.

Euan Uglow is one of the most interesting British figurative artists of the second half of the C20th and this splendidly-produced volume is a fitting monument. It replaces the incomplete Browse and Darby volume which I see some are trying to sell for an outrageous amount: that is now unnecessary. The essays and critical apparatus are first rate in this Yale publication and the quality of the colour reproduction very reliable. One star deducted as some very important pictures are reproduced far too small, but otherwise a long-overdue tribute to a master.

This handsome volume opens with two essays. The first essay looks at the young artist and his development; his time at art school, first Camberwell and then The Slade, and considers those who influenced him, especially William Coldstream. The second essay looks more particularly at the artist's main body of work, and considers again the influences.

The fully illustrated catalogue section provides much additional information about the individual pieces, many being accompanied by detailed descriptions and interesting facts about their production, often including the artist's own comments. The reproductions vary is size considerably, there are a good number of full-page or near full-page images, but at the other end of the scale a large number are very small. In total there are well over 400 of the artist's works illustrated, according to the publishers this includes every known oil painting, about 80 of which are reproduced here for the first time. In addition to the paintings there are also a number of representative drawings, designs, and a few rather personal more suggestive pieces.

The book includes a chronology, bibliography, and exhibition history for each work.

A quick glance at the content might suggest there is very little information about the man Euan Uglow, but careful reading gradually provides some insight in an almost incidental manner. We learn about the man from his work, and not about the work from the man.

Having the full body of Uglow's oeuvre to consider it becomes immediately apparent where his interests lay; the female nude predominates, still life features strongly too. There are landscapes but nothing like the quantity of the former two, mostly produced during summers away.

I first became aware of Euan Uglow in the early 70's, with a reproduction of one of his pear paintings which looked stunning, but completely out of date at the time. It's funny how things change and figurative artists are now becoming more interesting and possibly more valued. Uglow is associated with the nude and there are plenty of wonderful reproductions here - good quality and even some quite small reproductions are easily readable due to the simplifications employed in their making. All of his work is sensuous; not just the nudes, but also and, most surprisingly, his landsacapes and still life paintings. Some of the landscapes are a revelation, more so because they are mere holiday pieces, forming a natural break from his more recognised works. The still life paintings are sumptuous and everything in the catalogue is measured, calculated, one might say systematised, but in a way that is far from sterile or formulaic because they are simply life-like in that they create a life for themselves; one that, on the one hand are as simple as cartoons, but on the other, are multi-layered, complex and tangible. Uglow is a "one off," exceptional artist and this catalogue is probably a definitive statement of his life, work and, one might say, genius. It really isn't cheap, but the production quality is very good and the price is probably worth every penny.

And i really mean that. No regrets buying this. It describes all the artist's work in a scholarly yet engaging way. A book which is as readable as it is easy on the eye.
