Waves and Waterfalls

£50.00

Product description

In 2007 the Marlborough Fine Art gallery presented an exhibition of work by Maggi Hambling, the then 62-year old Suffolk-born artist, focussing on water - both salt and freshwater - a series of oil paintings full of immense energy and atmosphere. This catalogue offers colour reproductions of 20 of these works, clearly demonstrating the artist's technique and skill.

Maggi Hambling CBE (b. 1945) is a British painter and sculptor. Perhaps her best-known public works are the sculptures "A Conversation with Oscar Wilde" (in London) and "Scallop", a 4-metre-high steel piece on Aldeburgh beach, dedicated to Benjamin Britten. Both works have attracted a great degree of controversy. Her paintings, however, are equally remarkable, often with water as the subject. She is also well-known as a portraitist, having produced a series of portraits of the comedian Max Wall while artist in residence at the National Portrait Gallery (1980). Subsequently, however, she mainly painted women - notably Professor Dorothy Hodgkin - and also pictures of deceased people, as a form of memorial.

Our book is in very good condition, the original publisher's illustrated front cover, lettered red and yellow, showing few signs of wear apart from some minor wear at corners, some minimal deformation of the mid-spine, and a small 1 cm tear at the foot of the back cover, with an associated horizontal crease across the width of the cover (see photo). Inside, the binding is firm with no loose pages, and all pages are clean and bright.
