Derrick Greaves (b.1927) initially gained acclaim in the 1950s, when he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale along with the other 'Kitchen Sink' painters with whom he was associated: John Bratby, Edward Middleditch and Jack Smith. This is the first book to trace Greaves's entire career to date, providing insight into how his work developed from the social realism of the 1950s to a more heraldic style that paralleled 1960s Pop Art.
