Published by Royal Academy of Arts.
Text by Mel Gooding.

Over the past decade, Frank Bowling (born 1934) has enjoyed belated attention and celebration, including a major Tate Britain retrospective in 2019. This comprehensive monograph, published in 2011, is now available in an updated and expanded edition. Born in British Guiana, Bowling arrived in England in his late teens, going on to study at the Royal College of Art alongside David Hockney and Derek Boshier. By the early 1960s he was recognized as an original force in the vibrant London art scene, with a style that brilliantly combined figurative, symbolic and abstract elements.

Dividing his time between New York and London since the late 1960s, Bowling has developed a unique and virtuosic abstract style that combines aspects of American painterly abstraction with a treatment of light and space that consciously recollects the great English landscape painters Gainsborough, Turner and Constable.

Text by Mel Gooding.

Now in paperback with superb new reproductions, this is the first comprehensive monograph on the art of Frank Bowling. Mel Gooding explores Bowling's unique and virtuosic abstract style and his gorgeous use of color, and establishes him as one of the finest artists of his generation in a book that spans Bowling s entire 45-year career. Born in Guyana in 1936, Bowling arrived in England in his late teens, studied at the Royal College of Art alongside David Hockney, and by the early 1960s had established himself as an original force in the vibrant London art scene. A move to New York exposed Bowling to his American contemporaries and his work was shown in the 1971 Whitney Biennial. Today, Bowling shows regularly at major galleries and museums worldwide, and his work is in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Tate in London.
