Introducing a new critique of his autobiography and drawing on hundreds of private letters, studies and paintings, the author depicts a radical man of his times, contending with the pivotal concerns of the materialist age - the isolation of the individual, the collapse of faith and the status of art - and seeking solutions through a systematic testing of the extremes of painting. A close examination of the pictures, including neglected later works, combined with recent scientific research relate the physical act of painting, and paint itself, back to the body of the artist."--BOOK JACKET."
