The subject of David Boyd Haycock’s latest book is Augustus John. When the artist died in 1961, he was praised in The New York Times as ‘the grand old man of British Painting and one of the greatest in British History’. This lecture will explore John’s extraordinary life, including his early achievements, his position as one of the most exciting and outrageous young British artists before the Great War, his slow decline after it, and his troubled status as ‘the last Bohemian’.
