Product story

Ken Howard RA is one of Britain's best-loved painters. His cityscapes and coastal scenes reveal a deep connection with the location, including Venice, London and Cornwall, whilst his studio interiors are masterly evocations of space and light.
In this candid autobiography he reflects on work, travel, love and loss. He recalls his early days at art school, national service in the Royal Marines and the artistic commissions for the British Army that took him all over the world.
This book is 288 pages with 50 colour illustrations and is clothbound.
