Item description for The World of Beryl Cook by Jess Wilder...
From plump ladies at lunch to risqu nights in Plymouth pubs, Beryl Cook s immediately recognizable and widely popular work is celebrated in this generously illustrated publication that covers her entire career.
For over forty years Cook s work has captured moments of social history to create a perceptive record of life in the second half of the twentieth century. Offering a unique chronicle of British life, her paintings present ordinary people going about their daily activities--girls at the disco or shopping at the mall; sailors on shore leave; men at the pub or at weekend sporting events. More recently her work has featured international locations such as Paris, Barcelona, New York, Buenos Aires, and Las Vegas, where Cook s eye for the simple pleasures in life finds charming and revealing vignettes in the most unlikely places.
