Hugely admired by artists and writers from Henri Cartier Bresson to the Booker prize winner Howard Jacobson, the extraordinary life and work of painter Dennis Creffield (1931-2018) are explored in this major monograph on the artist. The narrative traces the artist’s ‘Dickensian’ upbringing, his formative experiences as a teenager under the tutelage of David Bomberg, his conversion to Catholicism and his award-winning years at the Slade. Focus is given to Creffield’s passions for the stories of England, not only in the Cathedral drawings, but in his expressive work on Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, on Blake and in his paintings and drawings of London, the great Petworth House, Cornish tin mines and the eerie military buildings on Orford Ness.
