Edward Ardizzone: Artist and Illustrator Alan Powers
The work of Edward Ardizzone, RA (1900-79) – probably the best-known British illustrator of his generation – is prolific and instantly recognisable. This book provides the first full overview of Ardizzone’s work since the artist’s death, analysing in turn his activity as an artist, writer and teacher, as well as incorporating fascinating biographical detail. Including many previously unpublished images, Edward Ardizzone: Artist and Illustrator contributes to the current reassessment and investigation of mid-twentieth century British art and illustration. Powers’s critically considered text is both appropriate for academic use and accessible to a wider readership familiar with Ardizzone’s work from childhood or encountering it for the first time.
