Over his long and successful career, David Remfry RA has achieved a mastery of watercolour that few have matched. Unusually for the medium, he works on a large scale and often focuses on people, exploring the dance hall and the nightclub in breathtaking images that are at once beautiful, and edgy. Having spent 20 years living and working at the legendary Chelsea Hotel in New York, Remfry has a following on both sides of the Atlantic. New Yorkers - often in party mode - feature in many of his watercolours, and his recollections of people and places add colour to the text.
The author, James Russell, is well known for his writing on 20th-century British artists. Russell brings his scholarship, humour and fascination for people and their lives to his study of Remfry's career, tracing the evolution of a remarkable talent, looking in-depth at the most significant works and placing Remfry in the context of both the British watercolour tradition and international contemporary painting.
This book is the first full-length monograph devoted to the artist's watercolours. At once a glorious art book and an intimate portrait of city life.
