Influenced by German Expressionism and Far Eastern art, the paintings of Cecil Collins (1908–89) radiate ‘that secret life which is very deep in us and is in danger of being destroyed by the modern world’. This volume celebrates his life and work through the memories of his friends, students and contemporaries. Alongside reproductions of his work, it includes an interview with his wife, the sculptor Elisabeth Ramsden, and a talk the artist gave at the Tate in 1981.
