DAVID JONES: The Maker Unmade

Much previously unknown material by British poet-artist DAVID JONES is revealed in this large and attractive volume. Aart scholars Miles and Shiel call him the ""odd man out""--a man of many styles in an era of abstraction, a religious artist in a century of increasing secularism, But they make a case for his importance, illustrated by works on a range of themes, including dreamy landscapes painted in a time of coming war; sexuality depicted in dense oil painting as well as in the lighter but more complex illustrations of the tale of Lancelot and Guinevere.
