Exhilarating 'Eileen Agar: Angel of Anarchy' is a New Release this week!

Featured image, of the pioneering but largely overlooked British painter and photographer Eileen Agar wearing her “Ceremonial Hat for Eating Bouillabaisse,” is reproduced from Eileen Agar: Angel of Anarchy, published to accompany the vibrant, definitive retrospective currently on view at Whitechapel Gallery, London. “The 20th Century begins to discover that most of life’s meaning is lost, without the spirit of play,” Agar is quoted in an essay by Marina Warner. “In play all that is gay, lovely and soaring in the human spirit strives to find expression. To play is to yield oneself to a kind of magic, and to give the lie to the inconvenient world of fact, and the hideous edifice of unrelieved utility. In play the mind is prepared to accept the unimagined and incredible... to be free, unfettered and divine.’”
