Beryl Cook has changed the way we look at the world. It is a tribute to her fame that when we see curvaceous girls all dolled up to go out on a hen night, or a pair of plump ladies gossiping over cups of tea and enormous cream cakes. Beryl Cook is the artist who immediately comes into our minds. Life is full of such 'Beryl Cook Moments'. Beryl Cook paints girls in the disco, in their underwear or shopping at the mall; sailors on shore leave; men at the pub, watching strippers; and everybody having a good time. More recently her work has taken in foreign locations such as Paris, Barcelona, New York, Buenos Aires and Las Vegas, where Cook's eye for the simple pleasures in life finds charming and revealing vignettes in the most unlikely places. The World of Beryl Cook presents a unique survey of Beryl Cook's forty-year career, beginning with her first painting from 1962 and ending with her most recent ones - with all her most famous works in between. This book traces the origins of her inspiration, from her life in Plymouth and Bristol, to her love for the work of Stanley Spencer and Edward Burra. It also presents a specially commissioned interview with Beryl, who has just celebrated her 80 th birthday. Формат: 20 см х 24 см.
