GRAHAM SUTHERLAND: LIFE, WORK AND IDEAS. Rosalind Thuillier. Lutterworth Press, Cambridge, 2015. 292 pp. with 204 ills. (114 col.). 26 x 21 cm. ISBN 9780718893408 In English.
Publisher's description: Graham Sutherland was an unusually articulate artist: in this book his diary entries, correspondence and conversations with the author and others, over the last years of his life are distilled and re-presented in a detailed and illuminating study of the transformation of the world, as Sutherland saw it, into the forms and shapes recorded in his art. Working with previously uncatalogued works and correspondence, Rosalind Thuillier examines Sutherland's early work work inspired by the landscape of Pembrokeshire in South Wales, his work as a war artist, his religious themes, his work after he moved permanently to the south of France, and his portraiture. In the final chapter, she returns to the influence of the Welsh landscape, to which Sutherland himself returned constantly in his later years. The intense pleasure and inspiration Sutherland derived from natural surroundings is clearly communicated throughout the book in superb photographs and paintings, outdoor sketches and studio work, naturalistic drawing and semi-abstract painting. The skill and insight with which Rosalind Thuillier presents Sutherland's vision and personality will delight readers who know his work and offer enormous pleasures of discovery to those who come freshly to it.
