Searching for Arcadia; The Life, Art and Times of John Craxton
An exploration of the life and work of this highly individual painter, whose paintings and theatre designs combined modernity with the great British landscape tradition.
Born in 1922, John Craxton discovered the visionary works of 19th century artists William Blake and Samuel Palmer while in his teens and their poetic imagining of Britain and her landscape fired his own creativity. As a young artist he shared studio space with Lucien Freud and was mentored by artists such as Graham Sutherland, before living and working in Greece and creating a personal, colourful and poetic artistic world.
