Wilhelmina Barns-Graham was one of Britain's most noted abstract artists, working and developing new techniques well into her 90s, until her death in 2004. Gunn (museum and gallery studies in art history, U. of St. Andrews) has compiled a complete illustrated catalogue of her known work in etching, linocut, lithography, screen printing, and monotype from 1946 to 2007. While Gunn had talked with both the artist and her close associate, both died before she was able to complete more structured interviews with them. Instead, she has relied on letters, diaries, notes, and other sources from the artist's archive. Her art lived in both abstract and representational camps, and varied greatly in tone, style, and execution. Her etchings and pencil sketches range from simple to complex, from fanciful to moody. Her screen prints, eventually her medium of choice, were in many instances vibrant enough to light up a room. The book is distributed in the US by Ashgate.
