A Life in Pictures
Available in Stock
Glasgow-born Alasdair Gray (b.1934) is perhaps better known for such novels as Lanark: A Life in Four Books (1981) than his art. But he has spent a lifetime making murals, portraits, landscapes and illustrations, which are reproduced copiously in this substantial volume of 'autopictography'. The accompanying text, which is forthright and insightful, narrates how his work has developed from the 1950s to the present, including many stories highlighting the influence of friends and family on his artistic direction.
