Product story

Over five decades, Humphrey Ocean’s paintings, prints and sculptures have filtered into our national culture. He depicts life in a witty and elegant way, in a style that is utterly distinctive.

This 320-page hardback book is the first major monograph on his work. Works from the 1970s to the present day are reproduced to provide a fascinating overview of Ocean’s career, with an essay by Ben Thomas, which sets out to discover exactly what it is that makes Ocean’s art so appealing and universal.
