David Blackburn and the Visionary Landscape Tradition (signed by David Blackburn)

£24.99

Product description

This book is signed by David Blackburn on the half title page with the inscription 2To Rachael with very best wishes! David Blackburn 1995". The book is in very good condition, although the cover has some wear at the corners (see photos) and a little creasing near the corners. Inside the book has small marks near the edges of a few pages, but the text and pictures are clean and unmarked, so overall the book is in very good condition.

"Most of David Blackburn's work over the past few decades deals with landscapes. However, the primary concern is not with the literal transcription of a landscape of observable facts, nor even with the landscape which represents a state of mind, but with a landscape which serves the role of a visual metaphor, a visionary landscape which on earth provides a glimpse of paradise."

"This book was first discussed in 1977 after...David Blackburn...had come to Canberra....A second, more or less serious attempt at a book was made in 1984, when David was once more in Canberra and further interviews were recorded."

This book contains 34 pages of text on "David Blackburn and the Visionary Landscape Tradition" interspersed with black and white pictures of his work, followed by a synopsis in French and then in German. The latter part of the book is mainly taken up with 60 colour plates of works by David Blackburn. Published to coincide with the exhibition "David Blackburn A Retrospective " held at Huddersfield Art Gallery 9 November-31 December 1994.
