The first monograph in two decades on the groundbreaking but overlooked British painter Victor Willing
The figurative paintings, drawings and sculpture of British painter Victor Willing (1928–88) feature childlike forms and hallucinatory imagery reminiscent of Picasso and Bacon. This book traces Willing’s tumultuous life and collects archival material, texts and an interview by his close friend, critic John McEwen.
