Anne Desmet: A Greek JourneyAnne Desmet: A Greek Journey

Published by Royal Academy of Arts.
Text by Anne Desmet.

Every page of this intimate sketchbook revels in the bright colors and spacious vistas of the Greek islands

Every page of this delightful little book—meticulously reproduced from the sketchbooks that the British artist Anne Desmet (born 1964) has used since her first travels to Greece in the 1980s—is soaked in Mediterranean sunshine. Desmet specializes in wood engravings, linocuts and mixed-media collages, but she also maintains an active drawing practice, at home and on holiday. Desmet’s drawings in this volume show the daily life at her Greek destinations and the bobbing fishing boats, shady streets and bright blue seas that make the Greek landscape so recognizable.
Desmet commits every detail to paper, and the book’s intimate, small-scale format emphasizes her distinctive flair for capturing the relationship between extreme foreground and distance. Colorful and atmospheric sketches in pen, wash and watercolor conjure up the unique feel of the Sporades. Desmet notes the locations of each sketch, allowing the reader to follow her from island to island across the Aegean Sea in an intimate travelogue.
This gem of a book follows the artist’s bestselling sketchbook, An Italian Journey. Like that volume, Anne Desmet: A Greek Journey offers something truly special—a glorious tour of the Greek islands through the eyes of a meticulous and precise artist.

Anne Desmet: An Italian JourneyAnne Desmet: An Italian Journey

Published by Royal Academy of Arts.

This jewel-like book of pen, wash and watercolor sketches by British artist Anne Desmet (born 1964) evokes the unmistakable landscapes and cityscapes of Italy. Best known for her engravings, linocuts and mixed-media collages, Desmet is also a dedicated draftswoman. She found herself working and sketching in Italy for the first time at age 25, in Rome on a scholarship. In this volume, comprised of selected illustrations from four of the artist’s sketchbooks, made over the course of many journeys to Italy over the past 25 years, the viewer experiences Desmet’s pen committing every detail to paper, and the small-scale format of the book emphasizes her distinctive flair for capturing the relationship between extreme foreground and distance. Anne Desmet: An Italian Journey is a unique opportunity to explore Italy, from the Apennines to the Veneto, through the eyes of a meticulous and precise artist.
