Published by Royal Academy of Arts.
Text by Chris Orr.

In The Miserable Lives of Fabulous Artists, British artist Chris Orr (born 1943) turns his affectionate and humorous lens on some of the most famous artists of the past. With over 30 new works accompanied by Orr’s handwritten captions, everyone from Edward Hopper to Pablo Picasso finds themselves in weird and wonderful situations. Edvard Munch holidays at the seaside, John Constable is disturbed at his easel by frolicking nudists; Walter Sickert is distracted from a spreadeagled model by a fly in his soup; Jackson Pollock loses a button; Frida Kahlo enjoys a fry-up; and many more. Each print is packed with detail to pore over, and the book concludes with an engaging essay from the artist, accompanied by sketches and preparatory drawings. Celebrate the lives of the fabulously artistic in this brilliant book, as they come up against Orr’s incorrigible wit.

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Pat Fisher. Text by Max Hollein, Colin R. Martin.

This monograph surveys the work of Scottish painter Christopher Orr (born 1967), comprised mostly of paintings and collages. Orr's imagery derives from an extensive archive of vintage magazines, science textbooks, 16mm and Super 8 film stills, and his intimately scaled canvases oscillate between reality and the uncanny.

Chris Orr: The Making of ThingsChris Orr: The Making of Things

Published by Royal Academy Publications.
Text by Robert Hewison.

Chris Orr (b. 1943) is one of Britain's foremost printmakers. In this definitive book he and Robert Hewison explore his remarkable career, from his early experiments as a student in the 1960s, to his later innovations in lithography, silkscreen, and digital printing. Hewison also considers the significant contribution that Orr has made to printmaking as a teacher. Illustrated with over 150 of Orr's theatrical, witty, and willfully allusive prints, this book looks for the first time in depth at the gloriously original output of a ceaseless inventor.
Robert Hewison is a critic and cultural historian who has published widely on British art and culture of the 19th and 20th centuries. Chris Orr was elected a Royal Academician in 1995. He lives and works in London. Michael Palin is an actor, broadcaster, and writer, most famous as a member of the comedy group Monty Python and for his travel documentaries.

Published by nyehaus/foundation 20 21.
Text by Caoimh'n Mac Giolla Léith.

Most of London painter Christopher Orr's canvases are smaller than 10 inches square. Combining the style of nineteenth-century Northern Romantic painting with isolated images culled from vintage illustrated sources such as children's books, popular scientific journals and religious magazines, the paintings are moody and evocative, their figures "sleepwalking cyphers who have strayed here from an indeterminate elsewhere where they once had a purpose," according to essayist Caoimh'n Mac Giolla Léith. This volume is a delight, with deluxe paper cut to different sizes, an enclosed poster and a special half-soft-cover, half-hardcover cloth binding.
Christopher Orr was born in Helensburgh, Scotland, in 1967. He has had recent solo shows at Nyehaus, New York, Hauser & Wirth, Zurich, Ibid Projects, London, and Sister, Los Angeles. His works are in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
