A contemporary of Euan Uglow, Michael Andrews and Craigie Aitchison, Sutton is a member of the glittering generation that emerged from the 'Slade School of Art' after World War II. In this beautifully produced book, Simon Tait traces Suttons meteoric rise from humble beginnings to successful artist, revealing the importance of Suttons family and domestic surroundings to the shaping of his artistic vision. Extensively illustrated, the works span all aspects of the artists diverse output, showing the influence of Matisse and Suttons exuberant use of colour, whether he is painting a portrait or the back garden, a scene from Shakespeare or a view of the Houses of Parliament, ceramics or stamps. This book affirms Sutton as one of the most accomplished of postwar British artists.
