  • Portrait of an Artist

    This publication examines how artist's portray themselves in self-portraits and how they portray their fellow artists. The artist's studio, models and milieu (friends, family etc) are also considered.
    Most of Liss Llewellyn's projects in the last twenty five years have involved working
    directly with artists' studios. Amongst the thousands and thousands of images that until now had lain undisturbed, often hardly seen since the day they were created, some occasionally stand out. Often modest in size and not obviously works of importance; a scrap of paper recordin... Learn More

  • Art, Faith and Modernity

    Which artists in British 20th century art painted religious images? Broadly speaking there seem to have been two categories:
    The first concerns artists who created religious images when the religious content was in response to a set subject, for example The Deluge in the 1920 Rome Scholarship in Decorative Painting, or who responded to a specific commission, for example Thomas Monnington‘s works for The Ormond Chapel, Bradford, Kippen Church and Stations of the Cross for Brede Church in Hastings.
    The second category concerns a small minority off artists who were committed believ... Learn More

Fifty Works by Fifty British Women functions as a corrective to the exclusion of women from the ‘master' narratives of art. It introduces fifty artworks by known and lesser-known women - outstanding works that speak out.

    Fifty commentaries by fifty different writers bring out... Learn More
