Exploring the full breadth of work by British artist Adrian Berg (1929-2011), this book looks at his meticulous engagement with the landscape and examines Berg's major paintings as well as works on paper, drawings, preparatory sketches and his extraordinarily detailed notebooks and methodology. Embracing the figurative when abstraction was in the ascendancy, Berg's artistic mission was to push the boundaries of representative painting to discover new interpretations of familiar scenes. Accordingly, his paintings revisited particular places repeatedly—most notably the view of Regent's Park from his studio window at Gloucester Gate. Highly colorful and engagingly written, this book provides a long overdue appraisal and celebration of an artist who is key to the conversation around the development of British landscape painting, that most celebrated of British traditions.
