Edited with text by Laura Smith, Grace Storey. Text by Marina Warner, Daisy Lafarge, Andrew Lambirth.

Painter and photographer Eileen Agar (1899Ė1991) was born in Buenos Aires and spent the majority of her life in Great Britain. In spite of her own pioneering contributions to painting, collage, photography and sculpture, Agarís career has largely been appraised in relation to her connections with major male figures of European modernism such as Paul Nash, Ezra Pound, Roland Penrose and Paul …luard. This monograph seeks to overturn that narrative and delve into Agar as a fully autonomous artist whose unique style was a crucial element in the development of European culture in the 20th century.Dense with pattern and color, Agarís work across various media draws from Cubist and Surrealist tendencies of material juxtapositions and fractured imagery, evoking emotion through distortion. Alongside reproductions of rarely seen artworks, writer Marina Warner, poet Daisy Lafarge and Agarís biographer Andrew Lambirth reflect on the artistís progressive attitudes toward art, sexuality and art history.
