The Art of Augustus John
Boston: David R. Godine, 1975.
With 24 colour plates and 66 black and white plates, this is the first major reconsideration of John's place, after a prodigious early career and slow decline.
His unusual skills as a portrait painter and ability to catch the bohemian spirit of his circle shine on to his death in 1960, however.
