Thanks to everyone who has purchased copies of the first two editions of our book dedicated to the work of printmaker Peter Green OBE RE.
Written by Nathaniel Hepburn
St Jude’s are pleased to publish the first major work on the printmaker Peter Green under our Random Spectacular imprint.
Peter Green was elected as an associate of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers in 1958 and awarded an OBE for Services to Art and Art Education in 1988; he has been known within printmaking and educational circles for decades but his extraordinary output still awaits discovery by the wider public.
Green's career stretches from the 1950s where his vast lino prints of the Welsh landscape show the influence of John Craxton, Alan Reynolds and Graham Sutherland through to his most original and dynamic work produced in the last few years.
Peter Green: The Workmanship of Uncertainty is the first monograph tracing Green’s work from his earliest influences through to the most recent works to emerge from the artist’s studio. It is written by art historian and curator Nathaniel Hepburn (author of Barbara Hepworth: The Hospital Drawings, Tate 2012 and Cedric Morris and Christopher Wood: A Forgotten Friendship, Unicorn 2012).
Content: 108 text pages plus covers (soft back) featuring over 80 images of Peter's prints, paintings and watercolours.
Size: 245mm x 190mm
