Product story

A genuinely enjoyable read The Blue Cupboard details Jaray's thoughts, ideas and provides an insight into the mind of an artist.


“Post-Imperial Vienna, rural Worcestershire at war, art now – these are Tess Jaray’s accumulated recollections of her roots, the subjects of her inward eye, her wistful reverie reflective, wry and touching. An enviably beautiful book” - Brian Sewell Published by the Royal Academy of Arts (2014)
