No current Talk conversations about this book.

A relatively small, slim square format book of just over 100 pages. A very short foreword by the knowledgeable Lincoln Kirsten is followed by a conversation between Edward Lucie-Smith and Michael Leonard; this then is repeated in French and German. Pages 22 to 101 contain the full colour plates, with the image on the right hand page and the facing page blank apart from the title and basic facts of the picture. It concludes with a very brief chronology.

The paintings cover the whole range of Leonard’s output, including portraits, several of his stripped-to-the-waist roofers or scaffolders, candid male nudes, and men or groups in casual settings in a park. It is a fine little book, well produced, if there is a criticism it is simply that one would love to have the very same reproduced on a larger scale; however it is splendid to have his sensitive and honest portrayals available.
