Grayson Perry, famous for his ceramic vases decorated with shocking and unconventional imagery, is one of a generation of contemporary British artists to have emerged on the international stage in the last two decades. He shot to fame in 2003 when he won the prestigious Turner Prize, collecting the award wearing a lilac babydoll dress and red pumps. In this lavishly illustrated monograph, Jacky Klein explores Perrys work through a discussion of his major themes and subjects, such as class or conflict. Her text is complemented by a series of intimate, insightful commentaries on individual pieces by the artist himself. The book features some 150 of Perrys works as well as a rich selection of the visual material that has inspired him, from Afghan war rugs, medieval altarpieces and satirical prints to the paintings of Pieter Brueghel, Anselm Kiefer and the American Outsider artist Henry Darger.With an up-to-date biography, bibliography and exhibition history, this definitive book is the first to explore fully the achievements of Perrys twenty-five-year career.

Review:

'A gorgeously splashy volume, spliced with sharp, sober commentary, and invaluable words from Perry himself' --The World of Interiors

'An excellent introduction to this Turner Prize-winning artist and his unique artistic vision' --Artists & Illustrators

'[An] insightful dissection of Perry's art' --Metro

'Lavish ... Jacky Klein leads us into the warped world of this crossdressing potter with a keen intellect and sharp social insight' --Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Times

'In unraveling the mystique behind Perry, Klein shows why this unlikely artist is, in fact, most likely a national treasure'
--Financial Times

Beautifully produced ... insightful commentary ... the definitive account of Perry's achievements to date' --Bexhill Observer

'It's my first proper monograph of my whole career ... I'm really pleased ... I like to think of it being on the bookshelves of art historians, researchers and lovers.' --Grayson Perry speaking to Folio

'Each illustration ... is accompanied by background notes by the artist, giving more than a glimpse into the artist's psyche and making for fascinating reading'
