This collection of essays and critical texts is a vital source of information to those who are interested in visual art. Written over a 30-year period that has seen extraordinary changes in the British art world, Thompson’s voice stays fresh because it comes from a desire to understand ideas from the perspective of a working artist.
This publication includes essays on Jannis Kounellis, Marcel Duchamp, Mark Wallinger, Richard Deacon, Steve McQueen, Ria Pacquée, Orla Barry, Piero Manzoni and Panamarenko among others, as well as texts on realism, the art of the sixties, art education, the revival of British art in the 1980s, outsider art and the economics of culture.
