When Duncan Grant died in 1978, at the age of ninety-two, he had lived long enough to witness the beginnings of a revival of serious interest in his work. Now, a decade later, he is established as one of the most gifted and innovative of twentieth-century British artists.
The astonishing variety of styles and techniques which go to making up his oeuvre provide a particularly rich field for critical attention. Throughout his life Grant adapted to the widest possible range of media, from commercial interior decoration and design to fabric design, theatre and ballet work, ceramics, illustration and print making as well as easel painting and murals.
Although popularly associated with the Bloomsbury Group, Duncan Grant established his own reputation as an artist and played a leading role in the establishment of modernist art in Britain, without ever being doctrinaire in his approach to painting. As John Piper observed as long ago as 1930, "No British artist has ever preached less or prophesied more".
This book offers the first opportunity to grasp the overall achievement of Grant's extraordinary career in all its richness and diversity. It examines the influences that people and places had on him and demonstrates, with the use of many superb illustrations of his work, the extent of his enormous talent.
