Item description for Lovely Ladies by Robin Dutt...
Martin Leman is renowned as a painter of strikingly sensuous female nudes. He has been described as the most sophisticated 'nave' artists , and the endearingly naughty humour and wry simplicity of his work take their place in a long and honourable tradition of vernacular folk painting. His frank, fluent, enigmatic portraits of women inescapably bring to mind the sturdy, curvaceous studies by the great French naive painters, Henri Rousseau and Camille Bombois. Yet Leman has created something recognisably distinctive and refreshingly original from the unaffected approaches of traditional naive painting. Martin Leman's work is splendidly reproduced here and the paintings are accompanied by an illuminating commentary from the renowned art critic and curator Robin Dutt. This beautifully illustrated book reveals the breathtaking diversity of Leman s paintings. From the classic to the comic, the humourous to the seductive, Leman's art is as varied as the subjects.
