Synopsis

Prunella Clough (1919-1999) was one of the best and most original artists to emerge in the second half of the twentieth century. This book celebrates her outstanding contribution to British art providing, for the first time, a comprehensive overview of Clough's entire career.



Situating the development of Clough's art within the trajectory of her life, Frances Spalding explores the key themes and inspirations that informed the artist's work. The author's unique access to hitherto unpublished letters, a journal which Clough kept in the late 1940s and notebooks from the artist's visits around England, combined with her extensive knowledge of twentieth-century British art, ensures a ground-breaking and unique account of Clough's life and work.



Themes such as the importance of place in Clough's oeuvre, her interests in Surrealism, Neo-Romanticism and Abstract Expressionism run alongside broader debates such as the artist's position within the English art scene and her critical reception. Her relationship with her aunt, designer and architect Eileen Gray, is given due attention, as are other key alliances in her life.

With its breadth of material, Prunella Clough: Regions Unmapped will appeal to a wide spectrum of readers from those with a general interest in the artist and the period to curators, collectors, dealers and academics.

Frances Spalding is an art historian, critic and biographer and has been the Editor of The Burlington Magazine since September 2015. She is the author of a centenary history of the Tate and of British Art since 1900, as well as much-acclaimed biographies of Roger Fry, Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Gwen Raverat, the poet Stevie Smith and of John and Myfanwy Piper. In 2005 she was awarded a CBE for services to literature.
