Full Description

Drawing on the artist’s substantial and fascinating archive, the renowned design historian Tanya Harrod puts into their rich context the many strands of the work of Leonard Rosoman OBE RA (1913-2012). The range of Rosoman’s output is extraordinary, encompassing his time in the Auxiliary Fire Service in London and as an Official War Artist in the far east, his work for the theatre and as an illustrator, painter and teacher, and his large-scale murals for the restored chapel at Lambeth Palace and the RA Restaurant at Burlington House, home of an institution of which he was an integral part for over half a century. In her engaging assessment of Rosoman’s remarkable achievement throughout his long career, Harrod gives the reader a thorough grasp of this underrated artist and his world.
