1945-70 hare ↑ E-Pub Author Martin Gayford ✲ Admirable and extremely readableIt gives as a whole a sense of the inter relatedness of the London art world, its smallness, and how some of the great figures, including Freud and Hodgkin, took so long to be recognized Charles Saumarez Smith s BlogEngaging ApolloTo imagine that he is an amanuensis to the London painters scarcely does him justice He is like their VasariIt s a mark of the author s own talent that he has managed to herd such diverse and often unbiddable figures into a satisfying and insightful group portrait Evening StandardWell researched a fascinating look at postwar London artists, filled with entertaining figures.Gayford is clearly an astute questioner and good listener, getting artists to talk engagingly about their careers and creative preoccupations Daily Telegraph Saturday ReviewGayford s achievement is to give us a or less coherent narrative, which embraces a vast range of painters and sculptors his reach and his empathy are remarkable and that absolutely avoids the hideous gobbledegook of art speak, while never losing sight of the seriousness of his subjectAll the good stories, and , are hereThis is a genuinely encyclopaedic work, unlike anything else I have come across on the topic, informed by a deep love and understanding of modern painting Everybody interested in the subject should read it

the definitive history as well as an appreciation of its period ArtbookreviewIntimatethe book is a joyful, human read The Arts DeskThe development of painting in London from the Second World War to the 1970s is the story of interlinking friendships, shared experiences and artistic concerns among a number of acclaimed artists, including Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach, David Hockney, Bridget Riley, Gillian Ayres, Frank Bowling and Howard Hodgkin Drawing on extensive first hand interviews, many previously unpublished, with important witnesses and participants, the art critic Martin Gayford teases out the thread connecting these individual lives, and demonstrates how painting thrived in London against the backdrop of Soho bohemia in the 1940s and 1950s and Swinging London in the 1960s He shows how, influenced by such different teachers as David Bomberg and William Coldstream, and aware of the work of contemporaries such as Jackson Pollock as well as the traditions of Western art from Piero della Francesca to Picasso and Matisse, the postwar painters were allied in their confidence that this ancient medium, in opposition to photography and other media, could do fresh and marvellous things They asked the question what can painting do and explored in their diverse ways, but with equal passion, the possibilities of paint Table of ContentsIntroduction 1 14 Abercorn Place
