Bill Jacklin is one of the most exciting and individual artists of the generation that first came to prominence in the 1960s. From the start, he seemed destined to swim against the stream. In an era of Pop Art he chose to be an abstract artist, producing intricate patterns of grids and dots. When he had achieved success in this style, he returned to a type of realistic representation. He was and is an obsessed painter, driven by his own compulsions to follow an individual path. This book provides the definitive mid-career survey of this British and American artist.
