FORTHCOMING TITLES Rosemary Beaton Clare Henry, Alison Harper, Alexander Moffat This book celebrates 30 years of creative output from one of the new ‘Glasgow Girls’. Lavishly illustrated with over 150 illustrations of her highly distinctive landscape and life drawings, paintings, portraiture and environmental artwork. It includes illuminating essays by Clare Henry F.R.S.A, Alison Harper and Alexander Moffat o.B.E. R.S.A. ‘We are all unique like the impossible snowflake, however, occasionally there are people who come to earth a little or a lot more unique than most. Artist Rosemary Beaton (b. Greenock 1963) is one such person. Beaton and her work are a force of nature, a fire to warm your hands by, a beating heart of pure instinct and energy connected to a visual poetic framework outside of words and reason.’ Alison Harper 2017 Beaton shot to fame in 1984 whilst still a student at the Glasgow School of Art when, at the age of 20, she won the National Portrait Gallery’s coveted annual Portrait Award. Not only was Beaton the first Scottish recipient of the prestigious UK award she was also the youngest. Her commissioned portrait of the British political broad caster and commentator Sir Robin Day (1923-2000) is part of the contemporary collection in the National Portrait Gallery, London. Keith New Diana Coulter and Dr Robert Smith A significant and pioneering British modernist stained glass artist, Keith New (1926-2012) worked in the medium from the 1950s into the early 1970s, before turning to painting in later years. The first part of this monograph examines his career in stained glass, the second comprises a Catalogue Raisonné of New's known designs, both executed and unrealised. New is widely recognised as a skilful colourist and innovator in stained glass, particularly in glass appliqué. The 1952 Royal College of Art’s commission to design the nave windows for Basil Spence’s Coventry Cathedral launched his career, which maps onto the excitement generated by the 1951 Festival of Britain. New was brought to the attention of John Piper and John Betjeman as well as prominent architects, including Robert Matthew and Denys Lasdun. With a Foreword by Caroline Swash, herself an eminent stained glass artist, who knew Keith New over a period of several years, his position in the post-war emergence of Britain into a period of great optimism is fully explored. His legacy is a fragile art, and the book will deepen understanding of a fascinating creative period for art and design during the optimistic years in Britain following the Second World War. • First monograph on this pioneering stained glass artist • Includes photographs of his surviving glass and working methods • Key book for art historians, stained-glass practitioners and informed readers Clive McCartney: Passport to Paint Clive McCartney This is the first monograph devoted to the work of the artist Clive McCartney. It offers a review of his 30-year career and traces his artistic journey, from his early wanderings through Egypt and Sudan, Morocco and India, to the European capitals of Paris, Berlin, Rome and London, and finally his arrival in America. The book discusses the working processes involved in ‘series’ painting, in which works evolve into largescale projects. It also explores his fixation with the solitary and the existential nature of man, revealing a poignant area of work that examines figures set apart, but also together: the individual and the crowd, streets and interiors redolent of the past as well as what is about to come, empty corridors and parks that are more atmosphere than detail. With over 150 illustrations, McCartney shows the diversity of subjects he covers – still life, life drawing, landscapes, cityscapes, architecture, interiors, nocturnes and abstraction. •The first comprehensive study of the works of Clive McCartney • Reveals the variety of his subjects, making the book a visual feast not only for those interested in art, but also the nature of travel • Gives an insight into the artist’s creative methods 192pp / 275 x 230mm hardback / £30 iSBN: 978-1-911408-19-2 Publication date: January 2018 176pp / 270 x 210mm softback with flaps / £25 iSBN: 978-1-911408-21-5 Publication date: February 2018 192pp / 265 x 225mm hardback / £30 iSBN: 978-1-911408-24-6 Publication date: March 2018 1
