D'Oyly-John: Living in the Sun
Sorry, description is temporarily unavailable.
Cecil Rochfort D'Oyly-John (1906-1993) was born in South Africa, later settling in London, Brighton and Rottingdean on the south coast of England. He travelled extensively on the Continent and became well known for his Mediterranean landscapes, which were popularised through prints. A hallmark of D'Oyly- John's technique is his thick application of oil paint with a palette knife. During his heyday in the late 1940s, 1950s and 1960s he tapped into the market for cheerful representations of what were then becoming increasingly accessible holiday destinations. The artist himself was a colourful character, who mixed with the rich and famous including, amongst others, the actor Jon Pertwee, the playwright Terence Rattigan, the society osteopath (of Profumo Affair infamy) Stephen Ward, and the socialite Lady Docker. This richly illustrated monograph is the first on D'Oyly-John and demonstrates the continuing appeal of his paintings which capture the brilliance of the Mediterranean sunlight.
