Passion and Paradox: The Art of Stanislaw Frenkiel

By Anthony Dyson

Hardcover. Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 2001 hardcover with jacket/slight wear on the jacket/clean internally and boards. This work addresses the life and work of Stanislaw Frenkiel (1918-2001), a painter dedicated to figurative expression. His studies began in Cracow, his home city, but were interrupted by World War II, in the course of which he was imprisoned in Russia and later served in the Allied Forces. His studies were resumed after the war: his fine art training being complemented by Frenkiel's graduation in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute.

Benton End Remembered: Cedric Morris, Arthur Left-Haines and the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing..Benton End Remembered When in 1940 Cedric Morris and Arthur Lett-Haines moved to Benton End, overlooking the River Brett on the outskirts of Hadleigh, Suffolk, they were both established artists with international reputations. What they discovered was a somewhat ramshackle old house with over three acres of walled gardens lost beneath brambles and elderberries, but this became both their home and the new premises of the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing which, disillusioned with the commercial aspects of the art world, they had founded together in 1937 Near FINE BOOK AND FINE WRAPPER.Slight rubbing to board edges.

From the rear panel "the pictures on show here reveal the bawdy and best of Beryl Cook's work, much of it from her own home town: notorious Union Street, the striped lighthouse high-and-dry, loud ladies in the local - the shocks, delights and homeliness of it all". Published in association with the City of Plymouth Museum and Art Gallery. A good copy of an uncommon Beryl Cook title. B2
