Review quote

"Wittman's study is a compassionate, thoughtful and commonsense account of the man's art and life. Wittman admires Frater but does not flatter him, producing a dignified and modest assessment of a dignified and modest painter. It is also a handsome volume, produced during a dearth of scholarly and beautiful art books." --"The Age"show more
