Beautifully illustrated, Touch is the first book to focus specifically on the range and power of Hambling’s more intimate works on paper, and accompanies a recent exhibition at the British Museum.
This event is part of Essex Book Festival’s Place Weekend in Colchester on 4 and 5 March.
Here, whether in sensuous nudes, portraits of friends and lovers or tender depictions of her dying parents and friend Cedric Morris, Hambling’s florid yet vigorous style finds its natural expression. Ben Luke, The Evening Standard.
Hambling’s rapid versatility in many media matches her sociability. Every image has a gregariousness. Laura Cumming, The Observer.
