Refractions: Fallen Visionary.
POCHIN, Stephen ( Editor and Contributor ) [ Austin Osman Spare ] Essays by Phil Baker, Geraldine Beskin, Michael Staley, William Wallace, et al.
London: Jerusalem Press, 2012. First Edition Softcover. Large octavo. 200+ pp. Double sided color dustjacket over in limp card covers with metallic title label. Color plates and illustrations. Limited to 500 copies. Effectively a companion to the "Cockney Visionary" volume, which focused on the 2010 Austin Osman Spare Exhibition held at the Cuming Museum in South London. This new work contains complete transcriptions of the talks delivered at the exhibition by Judy Aitken, Phil Baker, Geraldine Beskin, Christopher Jordan, Ross MacFarlane, Stephen Pochin, Michael Staley, William Wallace, and Caroline Wise, along with reproductions of related images. It also includes detailed photographs of the displays, a fully illustrated list of the 110 works (including cabinet objects) that were displayed, and a more detailed survey of the loan items than was given in "Cockney Visionary." In an interesting touch the sequence of self-portraits by Spare as they were displayed at the museum is reproduced in the inside of the dustjacket. NEW book in fine condition. (Item ID: 42315)
