These journals provide great insight into the mind and art of one of the great 20th century artists. Though born in Poland, he is best known for his paintings of Welsh miners, for it was workers that inspired him, and he painted them with great simplicity, almost as monuments to work, and often with the sun and sky behind them so that they looked like latter-day saints. The journals reveal his artistic heritage, who inspired him, what he was in painters, what he thought of their technique. This is a fascinating book for anyone interested in art.
