  • Ben Nicholson

    R175

    Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) was considered to be one of the greatest British artists of the twentieth century, first coming to international prominence with his famous ‘white reliefs’ of the 1930s. A pioneer of abstract art in Britain, he played a significant role in the European avant-garde, forming close links with Picasso, Braque, Arp, Mondrian and others.

  • William Blake: Tate British Artists

    R300

    More than 150 years after his death, William Blake (1757–1827) remains a cryptic and controversial figure. Equally gifted as a poet and a painter, he produced work that is as arresting for its beauty as for its strangeness. With this fresh examination of Blake’s unfolding career, William Vaughan presents an artist with a radical and utterly individual vision, who was deeply concerned with the social, religious, and political issues of his age.

  • Bernard Leach-Tate British Artists

    R200

    Bernard Leach was a pre-eminent artist-potter of the twentieth century. In the early part of his career he spent twelve formative years in Japan, during a period of febrile excitement in the arts. In 1920 he returned to England to set up a studio in St Ives. Leach’s influence on the growth of the studio pottery movement, both in Japan and in the West, has been profound. His making of ceramics and his teaching of some of the foremost artist-potters of the period gives him a central place in the international history of the decorative arts.

    Edmund de Waal is a world-famous author and ceramicist. He is the author of The Hare with Amber Eyes, winner of the Costa Book Award for Biography and the Galaxy National Book Award (New Writer of the Year Award), and an Economist Book of the Year.
