    Paul Hogarth(Author) Richard Ingrams(Introduction)

    Book details

Painter, illustrative reporter, academician, and friend to many 20th century luminaries, Paul Hogarth's inquiring, adventurous spirit led to a most remarkable life. His own wonderful story, richly and generously illustrated, pulsates with wit and passion. Out of his working trips to China, the USSR, and its satellite states during the 50s came drawings that present a unique vision and an invaluable historical record. A dedication to literature led to Hogarth's collaborations with Doris Lessing, Brendan Behan, Graham Greene, and Lawrence Durrell. The wondrous artwork here ranges from atmospheric landscapes to pencil caricatures to charming watercolors. Whether the images show an honored public figure or crowds enjoying a baseball game, they shine with equal joy and respect.

Richard Ingrams is a renowned journalist and satirist. He is currently editor of The Oldie. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

    full of sunny places and humour, with great sketches and paintings. Mine came with PH's obituary as a page marker which was a nice if sad touch.
