  • Peter Coker R A

    ‘Of all the episodes within Peter Coker's long career,' writes Frances Spalding, ‘none is more surprising than the recent explosion of creativity following a difficult time of illness.'

    Born in 1926, Peter Coker was elected RA in 1972; his substantial output of acknowledged work was recently commemorated in a catalogue raisonné. Since a stroke in 1990 his work has been severely impaired, but the chance discovery of some earlier drawings sparked this ‘explosion of creativity', consisting of mixed media works, large oil paintings, lithographs and a series...

  • Laszlo

    Philip de Lászlo, following a meteoric rise to recognition in his native Hungary, settled in Britain in 1907 and became the leading portrait-painter in the country - taking over from Sargent. Marrying into the Guiness family, he painted members of almost every royal family in Europe and very many more of its Who's Who. He painted the present Queen Elizabeth as a girl, as well as the late Queen Mother and George VI. He is known especially as a portraitist of beautiful women (including Elinor Glyn), but his male portraits are very forceful and his talent was universal - including landsc... Learn More

  • Richard Walker

He works in a variety of media, including acrylic, collage, pastel, watercolour, charcoal and pencil, mainly on canvas and paper.

  • Annibale Carracci

    Annibale Carracci was the great genius of early Baroque painting in Italy, blighted by melancholia at the end of his life but full of promise and invention in his prime. This book concentrates on one of his most ambitious early works, the Venus, Adonis and Cupid in the Prado Museum, Madrid. The paintings has recently been cleaned and restored and this book establishes it as one of the great works of Annibale's career - and as a simply wonderful painting. The subject, which is taken from Ovid's Metamorphoses, was regarded in the Renaissance period as offering the greatest possible... Learn More

  • Prince Henry revived

    There can be few examples of intensive fashioning and self-fashioning by a Renaissance figure more remarkable than Prince Henry (1594-1612). Two decades after the appearance of Roy Strong's revelatory Henry Prince of Wales and England's Lost Renaissance this collection of essays re-examines the extraordinary artistic and cultural response to Prince Henry and presents many new findings in the context of recent scholarship.

    In the present age, in which anti-heroes are preferred to heroes exemplifying virtue and honour, and in which 'idols' are raised in the expect... Learn More

  • André Beauneveu

    This catalogue accompanied an exhibition at the Groeninge Museum, Bruges, which celebrated one of the greatest European artists of the late fourteenth century, André Beauneveu, apparently born in Valenciennes c. 1335. Active throughout the Southern Netherlands, his reputation grew swiftly and in 1364 he was commissioned by the King of France, Charles V, to create a group of royal tombs at St Denis. In the 1370s he oversaw another ambitious funerary project, for Louis de Mâle, Count of Flanders, at Courtrai, whilst continuing to undertake major civic commissions at Ypres, Mechelen and his...
