Published to accompany an exhibition shown in both London and Ferrara in 1996, this overview of the work of Renato Guttuso not only follows the development of his career, but also looks at the influence his work had for a generation of British artists. Starting with Guttuso’s early works, much influenced by Manet and Delacroix, Maurizio Calvesi charts his growth as an artist while Sarah Whitfield considers his left-wing leanings and how his political affiliations affected his work. In a separate essay James Hyman look at his influence on the work of mid-century British artists like Michael Ayrton, John Minton, Peter de Francia and Harry Baines. 58 full-page colour plates, alongside many documentary photographs and other illustrations make this a vital survey of an artist under appreciated in Britain, while an extensive bibliography provides information on other sources.
