A superb classical painter and draughtsman, Armstrong also undertook much work in film, theatre, and ballet, as well as being a successful designer of ceramics and murals. As a painter he has often been associated with the surrealists, especially after becoming a member of Unit One, a group formed by his contemporary Paul Nash in 1933 to promote modern art, architecture, and design, although his work resists any easy categorization. Armstrong was also a committed supporter of the Labour party, contributing designs to its election leaflets in 1945, and an active political campaigner. The first major study of Armstrong's work, the book draws on new and unpublished research that puts into context the highly original vision of a strongly independent and imaginative artist waiting to be rediscovered.

THE BOOKSNIFFER
(Lewes, East Sussex, United Kingdom)

Book Description Philip Wilson Publishers Ltd, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. A perfect NEW & UNREAD copy of this brilliant work, justly sought after by discerning collectors. A new copy, stored since publication in a low light book room. Armstrong's vivid and intensely personal vision is representative of a fine tradition in British painting. From Blake and Palmer to Turner and Spencer, his work is firmly placed. Imaginative, supremely skillful, and brilliantly executed. Why such painters are now virtually ignored by the Art Establishment - which is dominated by the Serota/Tate blinkered view of today's 'curators' - is a scandal. Seller Inventory # ABE-1556069422384
