Grayson Perry was the first major monograph published on the hugely popular contemporary artist - Grayson Perry. Now updated and expanded, art historian Jacky Klein explores the artist's major themes and subjects, through intimate and insightful commentaries on individual work of arts, and pieces by the artist himself, giving unique access to his imaginative world and creative processes. Over 175 of Perry's works are illustrated, as well as a rich selection of the visual material that has inspired him, from Afghan war rugs, Sumatran batiks and medieval altarpieces to the paintings of Pieter Bruegel and the American Outsider artist Henry Darger. Includes a fully up-to-date biography, bibliography and exhibition history.
