John Blockley – A Retrospective Compiled by Ann Blockley




  Published July 5th 2018 


Hardback (144 pages)

John Blockley was a ground-breaking artist whose work helped change the face of British watercolour. This beautiful retrospective of his work, which includes drawings, watercolours, pastels, acrylics and mixed media is a unique record of his artistic legacy and, for the first time, considers the whole spectrum of development in his painting, showing his progression and inspiration.

Subjects range from his iconic landscapes of the wild corners of UK,  cityscapes, farm buildings, flowers and still life, figures, marine paintings and more.  Artist Ann Blockley offers a perceptive narrative about her father’s painting life, which was always driven by his obsessive search for the essence of his subjects.
