Exploring the full breadth of work by British artist Adrian Berg RA (1929-2011), and drawing heavily on the artist's personal archive, this book discusses Berg's meticulous engagement with the landscape which resulted in an impressive oeuvre created over a long career.

Embracing the figurative when abstraction was in the ascendancy, Berg's artistic mission was to push the boundaries of representative painting to discover new interpretations of familiar scenes. Accordingly, his paintings revisited particular places repeatedly - most notably the view of Regent's Park from his studio window at Gloucester Gate.

Highly colourful and engagingly written, this book provides a long overdue appraisal and celebration of an artist who is key to the conversation around the development of British landscape painting, that most celebrated of British traditions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Livingstone's splendid study of Berg's life goes a long way to helping us understand his extraordinary brilliance as a colourist of rare intuition and observation, yet it allows the reader and viewer to enjoy the work independently as well...Grounded in perceptual observation, but full of the dynamism of hope, Berg's work is among the finest British landscape painting of all time.' - Studio International
