Uproar: The First 50 Years of The London Group 1913-63

Uproar: The First 50 Years of The London Group 1913-1963 offers the first up-to-date overview and critical assessment of The London Group's turbulent early history and an equally important period in British art. Published in the Group's centenary year, this book draws on fascinating archival material and historical press reports to explain the importance of these first 50, highly experimental years, painting a vivid picture of the various disputes between artists and the press/public, the jostling of various artists movements or groups, and the internecine warfare that often erupted between them. As well as providing an overview of the Group's early history and subsequent development, this essential reference book showcases and illustrates 50 works by 50 artists representative of the Group's first 50 years, drawn from public and private collections throughout the UK (with captions compiled by relevant experts in the field); biographies for each artist illustrated; a full bibliography; a timeline; and a listing of all the artists who exhibited with the Group, with the year of exhibition and number of works illustrated."
