Mrs. Andrews Bedford has drawn on a rich store of family memories, diaries, letters and archives to create an intimate biography of the artist. Her research both here and abroad have created an authoritative portrait of the artist and his personal and professional milieu. This rare material allows intriguing insights into the development of a professional artist in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and the extensive professional challenges and obligations that artists faced and that influenced their work. This is a triumph of critical and historical accuracy combined with a readable story of a successful artist – his work, his life and his times.
Long out of print and quite rare.
