Description

This visually stunning survey provides an in-depth look at Eileen Hogan’s (b. 1946) working methods. Covering her entire career, it focuses particularly on two dominant themes in the artist’s oeuvre—enclosed gardens and portraiture. Her depictions of gardens range from London’s well-known Kew Gardens and Chelsea Physic Garden to Little Sparta, Ian Hamilton Finlay’s garden in the Pentland Hills near Edinburgh. Her portraits include expressive sketches and paintings of veterans of the Second World War, and of HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall. The book includes images from Hogan’s sketchbooks, her studies, and finished paintings, accompanied by striking photographs of the artist at work. Essays by scholars and Hogan herself trace the artist’s career from her student days at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts through the present. This volume provides an unprecedented, intimate look at the life and work of one of the most interesting and evocative artists working today.
