Gordon Onslow Ford:
A Man on a Green Island

Fariba Bogzaran, Editor

This award-winning book presents a much-needed survey of the significant contributions of Gordon Onslow Ford and his oeuvre to the history of twentieth and twenty-first century art and its relevance to contemporary dialogue. This first monograph includes contributions by seven international scholars and art historians, each focusing on a distinct period of his life and work. It is punctuated by visual interludes that show the range of his associations within the art world through some never-before published letters and photographs.
