Originally published in 1939, this book presents an artistic memoir, covering a fifty-year period, by the Scottish painter and lithographer Archibald Standish Hartrick (1864-1950). A richly detailed account is provided, reflecting Hartrick's first-hand experience of 'violent and puzzling' changes within the art world and his personal relationships with figures such as Van Gogh, Gauguin and Toulouse-Lautrec. Illustrations by the author are incorporated throughout. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the writings of Hartrick, Post-Impressionism and the history of art.
