Published on the occasion ofMoreA key figure in the School of London--the group of postwar British figurative painters that included Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon--Leon Kossoff was born in Islington and has lived and worked in London his entire life.

Published on the occasion of a rare exhibition of early Kossoff paintings at New Yorks Mitchell-Innes & Nash gallery, this monograph introduces 12 works, including fine examples of his figure paintings and cityscapes, dating from 1957-1967--most of which have never before been seen in the United States. Kossoffs style is characterized by an impasto surface, built up in frothy layers that evoke emotional tumult. The volume provides such meticulous reproductions of these paintings that the reader is able to get a feel for their unique texture and surface.

Also featured is an essay by English cultural critic Al Alvarez, rare photographs of Kossoff in his studio and a biography and timeline of his life and career.
