Abstract:

"Until now, only visitors to the National Gallery of Guyana would have had any chance of recognising just how outstanding an international artist Denis Williams was. This book presents a unique and long-overdue opportunity for the reader to access his art in all its range and variety, not least because its author, his daughter Evelyn A. Williams, provides access to paintings and drawings held by the family, rarely if ever seen before. What the book represents is a story of both an outstanding talent, praised world-wide, by the likes of Henry Moore and Salvador Dali, and a journey of searching integrity in which Williams placed the necessity of his vision before any urge to win the plaudits of fame and fortune in the art world. It is a story of a constant need to expand the forms of his art and to escape from constriction."--Jacket.
