'the accompanying catalogue, Bomberg by Sarah MacDougall and Rachel Dickson offers a handsome stand-alone guide to this protean painter' - The Times
A major new monograph on the important and influential 20th-century British artist David Bomberg (1890-1957)
This handsome book accompanies a touring exhibition at Pallant House, Chichester, Laing Gallery, Newcastle and Ben Uri Gallery, London.) The monograph is a comprehensive yet succinct account, providing an informed and accessible overview of Bomberg's career and achievements, combining a biographical narrative with an analytical and interpretative approach.
It discusses and illustrates Bomberg's five key periods and motifs including early, experimental modernism pre the First World War; War artist's commissions and immediate postwar works; major Jerusalem landscapes; portraiture, and particularly self-portraiture; and the flowering of his mature landscapes. The book is also notable for its inclusion of new material relating to Bomberg's Jewish background, and its sumptuous illustrations.
