This is the first full-scale survey of the art and life of Terry Setch (b.1936), a British painter recognised internationally as one of the most consistently radical artists of his generation. It provides a critical structure and historical perspective with which to explore Setch's artistic production over 50 years. Martin Holman's text considers Setch's work in terms of the themes that he has sustained over the course of his career, and the qualities that have made him admired by several generations of British artists. It places his art in the context of the work of his contemporaries (Michael Sandle, Patrick Caulfield, Julian Schnabel), the times in which the paintings were made and exhibited, and Setch's dialogue with Modernism, international art and history.
