Summary note:
In this first comprehensive and lavishly illustrated survey of his work, the reader is invited into Dean's studio to an intimate conversation about his life and career with author James Attlee.Graham Dean, one of Britain's leading figurative painters, has resolutely followed his own path. In particular he has challenged accepted ideas about watercolour, wresting it away from its 18th-century roots in landscape painting to make monumental, life size depictions of the human body that can take years to complete and have a depth and vividness of colour more often associated with work in oils. He discusses the details of his technique, the role of the model in his practice, the people and influences that have shaped his career and the importance of his early years in Liverpool, as well as providing valuable insights into key works among his oeuvre.
