Black Artists In British Art
Black artists have been making major contributions to the British art scene for decades, since at least the middle of the 20th century. Sometimes, these artists - with backgrounds in the countries of Africa, the Caribbean, and Asia - were regarded and embraced as British practitioners of note and merit. At other times, particularly during the 1970s and 1980s, they were not. In response, on occasion, black artists came together and made their own exhibitions or created their own gallery spaces. In this book, Eddie Chambers tells the story of Britain's black artists, from the 1950s onwards, including recent developments and successes.
Black Artists in British Art represents a timely and important contribution to British art history. Utilizing substantial and hitherto little-accessed bodies of archival material, Chambers avoids treating and discussing black artists as isolated practitioners, wholly separate and disconnected from their counterparts. Neither does he seek to present a rosy and varnished account of black-British artists. Instead, he explores and reflects on the very real difficulties that have faced black artists throughout the decades of their practice. Beginning with discussions of the pioneering generation of black artists such as Ronald Moody, Aubrey Williams and Frank Bowling, who came to London either side of the Second World War, Chambers candidly discusses both the problems and the progress of several generations of artists, including, contemporary artists such as Steve McQueen, Chris Ofili and Yinka Shonibare, now numbered amongst the country's most accomplished practitioners.

The Artist Who Painted A Blue Horse
This is Eric Carle's wonderful new book, "The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse". "I am an artist..." begins Eric Carle's vibrant tribute to the creative life. And just like an imaginative child, this is one artist who paints the world as he sees it - a red crocodile, an orange elephant, a purple fox, a black polar bear (!) and a wonderful polka-dotted donkey.
Filled with some of the most magnificently colourful animals of Eric Carle's career, this is a book that celebrates imagination and the artist within us all. Inspired by the work of the great Expressionist painter Franz Marc, a founder of the artists' group known as Der Blaue Reiter ("The Blue Rider"), who famously used abstract blue horses in his paintings. Marc's vibrantly colourful paintings influenced generations of artists, and fired the imaginations of children's book artists far and wide. Examples of Marc's paintings and a short biography are included at the end of the book.
