This eagerly-awaited book is based on the acclaimed exhibition at the Francis Kyle Gallery, London, in Spring 2005, of paintings inspired by one of the twentieth century's most well-loved novels, The Leopard by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. Lair of the Leopard includes over seventy works of art from Kyle's impressive stable of artists, from the likes of Julian Bell, Hugh Buchanan, Edward Stone, Philip Hughes and Lucy Raverat, and covers a breathtaking range of techniques, styles and interpretations of the theme. The dazzling Sicilian sun, the golden landscape, the rich food and the faded grandeur of the shady palatial interiors provide a vivid visual feast. This volume will be welcomed as a companion by the many, who claim The Leopard as their favourite book. Special contributions by Lampedusa's biographer, David Gilmour and Kate Quill, a journalist for The Times, help put the paintings in context.
