James Boswell He made many drawings of life in Britain during the 1930's and perceptive sketches of life in war-time Britain. His pre-war satirical style has been described as "attractively pugnacious" and compared to the work of the German artists George Grosz and Otto Dix and to British artist/illustrators such as Edward Ardizzone. It was an influence on later artists such as Ronald Searle and Paul Hogarth. Although much of his work was political satire aimed at exposing class injustice, he also produced work simply portraying everyday life, such as his 1939 series of London lithographs. Despite not being an official war artist, he is known for his scenes of life in the armed services, including his overseas service in Iraq. These, now in the Tate, Victoria and Albert Museum and Imperial War Museum, are said to magnificently evoke the atmosphere, boredom and solitude of military life. While in Iraq he also produced a series of surreal sketches depicting his experience more symbolically. In later life he settled into painting abstract oils and landscapes.. 1st Edition. Paperback. Very Good. Illus. by James Boswell. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
