Description

Anna Pugh is one of Britain's leading folk artists. Her work has an international following, and her obvious empathy with the countryside, with animals and with plants in particular, gives her work a spellbinding charm, and has made it extremely popular.

In this book, the first to be written on her work, critic Angus Stewart analyses the peculiar character and strength of her paintings and sets them in the context of her life and inspiration.
