5.0 out of 5 stars Drawing to a close: The final Journals of Keith Vaughan, 2 April 2013
This review is from: Drawing to a Close: the Final Journals of Keith Vaughan (Hardcover)
Keith Vaughan is one of the most important of post war British artists. He was almost alone in tackling one of the most challenging subjects: figures in a landscape. His series of paintings: Assembly of Figures are amongst the most innovative and moving accounts of existential man in the modern world. An equally important achievement was his set of journals providing a rare insight into the creative mind and the often lonely predicament of the artist.
These were first published by Alan Ross in 1966 and were a brave and candid account of his life and homosexuality. A further publication by John Murray in 1989 brought the journals up to 1977 and his suicide. However, the picture was not complete, until now. Gerard Hastings has provided a definitive account of the last years with the publication: Drawing to a close, the final journals of Keith Vaughan. It is rare to find an account of an artist`s life that is as well researched and authentic as this, the author having personal contact with those who knew and were close friends of the artist. This publication will become essential reading for historians, scholars and researchers into the life and work of Keith Vaughan and post war British Art. We have a debt to Gerard Hastings for providing us with this erudite publication.
