About this item

Published to accompany the exhibition at Piano Nobile, William Coldstream | Euan Uglow: Daisies and Nudes is a fully illustrated publication examining for the first time the unique relationship between William Coldstream and Euan Uglow. Uglow studied under Coldstream initially at Camberwell and then at the Slade where Coldstream was Professor from 1949. Even amongst a young group of exceptional painters including Craigie Aitchison, Michael Andrews and Howard Hodgkin, Uglow was immediately recognised as a precocious talent. The relationship of teacher and student evolved from friendship into one of mutual influence and sustained inter-generational artistic dialogue. Working with restraint and exactitude, paintings by Coldstream and Uglow are masterpieces in rigorous refinement and quiet passion. Informed by an artistic heritage of concern with rigorous and reflexive formal construction, looking to Piero della Francesca, Cézanne and Giacometti. Coldstream and Uglow sought to reveal a logical order underlying the visible world. Driven by the conceptual challenge of reconstituting rather than imitating reality in painted form, Coldstream and Uglow's interrogation of perception left a lasting legacy upon post-war figurative painting.The publication includes an introductory essay with new research on the relationship between William Coldstream and Euan Uglow, a catalogue of carefully selected works by both artists with accompanying descriptions, biographies on both artists, a bibliography, and numerous color illustrations.
