The approachable text surveys the reasoning behind the artist's method of painting large-scale 'Projects' on themes such as Vagrancy, Jealousy, Self-Portrait, Old Age, and Death. The ideas underpinning the artist's thinking about the nature of human relationships are fully explored, using the artist’s own words. 80 colour plates, many showing paintings never before published, show the full breadth and development of his extraordinary range and skill as a painter. Revealing biographical photographs accompany the text throughout and the book also features the colour photography of Derek Harris, which captures the dramatic surroundings of the artist's studio and private library.
