Mervyn Peake : my eyes mint gold : a life by Malcolm Yorke( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and French and held by 367 libraries worldwide
"Mervyn Peake, creator of the extraordinary Gormenghast novels, was a painter, poet, illustrator, and dramatist, as well as a writer. He was also famously witty, eccentric, widely popular, and sturdily independent of the literary and artistic movements of his day - and he achieved cult status even before his early death in 1968." "In My Eyes Mint Gold - the eponymous line is from a poem entitled "If I Could See Not Surfaces" - Malcolm Yorke brings us the objective biography of this brilliant figure, written with the Peake family's full cooperation. With access to letters, photographs, and drawings never previously published, Yorke charts a life often shadowed by mental turmoil and anxiety yet always, until its tragic end, relieved by Peake's quirky humor and ceaseless creativity."--BOOK JACKET

Keith Vaughan by Malcolm Yorke( Book )
7 editions published between 1990 and 2012 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide
Keith Vaughan (1912-77) was a major figure in post-war British art who is known for his searching portraits of the male nude and his association with the Neo-Romantic painters. This book provides for the first time a definitive, illustrated account of his life and work, exploring his wide-ranging achievement as a modern British artist. Drawing on Vaughan's considerable writings, Philip Vann explores the many aspects of the artist's personal, professional and philosophical-inner life. His text interweaves art-critical and biographical exploration to reveal a figure for whom art was inseparable from the nature of its creator. He reviews Vaughan's large body of paintings, drawings and illustrations: his early Neo-Romantic paintings of male bathers and boys in semi-abstracted landscapes, his post-war illustrations of young men immersed in elegiac contemplation of the landscape, and his later gouaches and landscapes. A fascinating essay by Gerard Hastings provides a close-up examination of Vaughan's gouache technique
