A Retrospective

by Ann Blockley



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
A beautiful retrospective of the work of one of the twentieth century’s most influential and innovative watercolorists: John Blockley.
Self-taught artist John Blockley produced work that has always been experimental and progressive: his highly textured style was well ahead of his time and still hugely influential. This beautiful survey of his work, comprising watercolors, pastels, and acrylics, brings together his finest art. His daughter, Ann Blockley, an acclaimed painter in her own right, provides the illuminating commentary, which explains his techniques and artistic vision. Breaking with so many traditions, John was and is a significant figure in the art world—and this book will captivate his many fans.

Ann Blockley is a well-known watercolorist and author of seven bestselling practical art books, including Experimental Flowers in Watercolour and Experimental Landscapes in Watercolour, both published by Batsford. Ann runs her own very popular watercolor courses, has made three DVDs of her painting techniques, and regularly writes for The Artist magazine. She lives in Gloucestershire, UK.
