Speaking and Painting
An intimate portrait of one of Britain’s greatest living artists. Auerbach has established an international reputation for his paintings with their vigorous, precise brushwork.

She gives a rare insight into his professional life, working methods and philosophy.
The first complete retrospective of a contemporary icon, prepared with Björk’s active creative involvement throughout. Five volumes presented in a slipcase as three 16pp booklets, one 24pp booklet, one 120pp paperback and a colour poster.
