"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

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.Read more ›
