Maggi Hambling: Touch

    SKU: cmc222076

    £35.00 Members' price *


    One of Britain’s leading contemporary artists, Maggi Hambling is renowned for a prolific body of work, spanning painting, sculpture and installation.

    Best known for her portraits, paintings of the sea and public sculpture. Both celebrated and controversial, which include A Conversation with Oscar Wilde (1998) and Scallop (2003).

    Less familiar but equally significant are the drawings and prints she has made since she was a student in the 1960s.

    Dynamic, sensuous and even disturbing, her works on paper are at the heart of her practice – distilling the themes of life and death that underscore her art. She forges an immediate and powerful connection with the subject being drawn, and it is this concept of ‘touch’ which pervades her work.

    This comprehensively illustrated book is the first to focus specifically on the range and impact of Hambling’s works on paper.

    From early drawings and etchings to her compelling portraits, depictions of the sea, and other more recent works, Maggi Hambling: Touch traces the artist’s engagement with drawing throughout her career, affirming her skill across a range of media, and her ability to touch the inner life of her subject.
