British artist Euan Uglow (1932-2000) is unfamiliar for good reason: his work wasn't seen by the public apart from two exhibitions in 1974 and 1989, in the gallery that represented him. Lampert (former director, Whitechapel Art Gallery, London) has brought Uglow and his work the attention they deserve. This catalogue raisonné lists all of Uglow's oeuvre and depicts it in 310 color and 120 black-and-white illustrations, which clearly show the artist's debt to Cézanne and Giacometti in his paint handling and in his incorporation of structural drawing, respectively. Two essays by Lampert and Kendall (an independent art historian) explore Uglow's career and his unique working methods, including the meticulous staging of compositions in his studio. Although the book's price will cause many librarians to think twice about purchasing it, libraries supporting fine arts programs or research in 20th-century painting should definitely make the commitment. Highly recommended for academic and art libraries.
