A full-scale monograph on Edward Burra with some 100 of his key paintings
Edward Burra (1905-76) was an English painter who is best known for his paintings of the seedy underworld of urban life. Yet, as this fascinating monograph on his work reveals, his interests were much broader, incorporating landscape and still-life paintings, stage designs, book illustration and watercolours.
This important book represents the first full-scale monograph on Edward Burra and reproduces 100 key paintings alongside drawings and a range of fascinating contextual material. It covers all areas of Burra's artistic production, from his early social paintings and Surrealist works to his lesser-known late landscapes and draws on fascinating archival material including letters and drawings, and includes previously unpublished works from private collections.
