The Portal Gallery in London has provided a venue for works by up- and-coming as well as established artists since 1959. Its unusual pictures, which lean toward the fantastic, magical and surreal, often with a dash of humour, include works by Beryl Cook, Peter Blake and Kit Williams, Jane Lewis and Heather Nevay. In this volume, more than 160 reproductions of paintings first shown at the Portal chronicle the gallery's first 50 years, its artists and its flair for the unconventional.
