EILEEN AGAR | LAURA SMITH

Eileen Agar was an artist who explored painting, photography, collage and sculpture. Her independent and inventive experiments with assemblage and colour linked her work inextricably with two major art movements of European twentieth century culture: Cubism and Surrealism. Laura Smith introduces us to a spirited an lyrical artist who found inspiration in beach-finds, the natural world, mythology and classical ideas, and combined them into her own striking examples of modern art. This is the sixth title in the Modern Women Artists series of collectable books, which together reveal an alternative history of art.
