Michael Holroyd's monumental two-volume biography of the Welsh artist, Augustus John. Illustrated with photographs, these books describe John's incredible life and his artwork, from studying at the Slade with his sister Gwen, his striking post-expressionist paintings before the Great War and his magnificent series of portraits from T E Lawrence, Dylan Thomas, Thomas Hardy and W B Yeats to name but a few.
The books are in very good condition, with volume 2 having some spotted fading to the top edge. The bindings are secure and the pages are clean. The dustwrappers have not been price-clipped and although a little rubbed and foxed are in good order. They are both in protective sleeves.
