Hattie Spires


Following Tate’s recent Winter (2019) publication, this engaging selection of works presents some of the most beautiful and stirring moments of the summer season drawn from Tate’s collection. Divided into key themes – ‘Return of Helios’, ‘The Green Tide’, ‘Sweltering bodies’, ‘Winding Down’ and ‘Mercury Rising’ – this book traces the hazy evenings and heated moments in the relationship between this season and the artists who sought to capture it. Summer, both languid and fiery, has never ceased to be a source of inspiration. Works of art – including paintings, drawings, photographs, illustrations and installations – are punctuated by brief captions adding additional information about the art, artists and their subjects.

Featured artists include: David Bomberg Eric Ravillious, Lorna Simpson, Henry Moore, Lisa Milroy, Barbara Hepworth, Helen Chadwick, Dod Procter, Mary Adshead, Paule V├ęzelay, Ethel Walker, Chris Killip, Dora Carrington, John Constable and Daido Moriyama.
