Gwen John : a painter's life by Sue Roe( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1942, at the height of his fame, Augustus John predicted that 'fifty years after my death I shall be remembered as Gwen John's brother'. Gwen John (1876-1939) is indeed now recognised as a great artistic innovator, yet for years her life remained shrouded in the myth of the solitary recluse. Born in Pembrokeshire, Gwen followed her brother to the Slade. She would always be bound up with Augustus, his women and his coteries, yet she was also daring and highly original, living determinedly in her own way." "Based on her lively and passionate unpublished letters, and copiously illustrated, this new biography challenges our prejudices about the ways we evaluate women artists and finally uncovers the life of this ardent and complicated personality."--BOOK JACKET
Gwen John by Alicia Foster( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From London in the 1890s to Paris during the early decades of the twentieth century, Gwen John's career spanned one of the most exciting periods in cultural history. Rather than reiterating the myth of Gwen John as a recluse, this new survey places the artist at the centre of the cities where she worked in order to appreciate her art in its context, and explore the alliances and differences the artist had with her contemporaries." "Gwen John's representation of the female nude, her paintings of interiors and the effect of her Catholic faith on her work are all considered. The author also discusses the key relationship between Gwen John's position as a woman artist and her life-long fascination with the portrayal of the female sitter"--Jacket
