Chris Orr: The Miserable Lives of Fabulous Artists

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.
