Item description for Richard Eurich 1903-1992: Visionary Artist by Edward Chaney...
Richard Eurich was an individual, English painter in the great tradition, warned when training at the Slade School of Art to keep away from French art--though he didn't. He was always a figurative artist, however, with both an extremely delicate touch and a penchant for surrealist harlequinades. He early on discovered an affinity for countryside and the sea, and made his name with his stunningly monumental and vivid pictures of the war at sea as a War Artist from 1940. From 1934 to his death he lived near the Solent, repeatedly painting its waters, its ships, and its beaches. His highly appealing work attracted a loyal following, for whom this retrospective of his career, published to celebrate the centenary of his birth, will be very welcome.
Contributors to the volume include Alan Powers, Peyton Skipworth, and Christine Clearkin. It also includes autobiographical excerpts and a memoir by Caroline Toppin, the artist's daughter. Edward Chaney is professor of media and art studies at Southampton Institute.
