Prunella Clough Regions Unmapped
As the 2007 Prunella Clough exhibition at Tate testified, Clough (1919-1999) was one of the best and most original artists to emerge in the second half of the 20th century. This book celebrates her outstanding contribution to British art, providing, for the first time, a comprehensive overview of Prunella Clough's entire career. Themes such as the importance of place in Clough's oeuvre, and her interest in Surrealism, Neo-Romanticism and Abstract Expressionism, run alongside broader debates such as the artist's position within the English art scene and her critical reception. Her relationship with her aunt, designer and architect Eileen Gray, is given due attention, as are other key alliances in her life. With its breadth of material, Prunella Clough: Regions Unmapped will appeal to a wide spectrum of readers, from those with a general interest in the artist and the period to curators, collectors, dealers and academics.
