Postwar Friends - Paintings & Drawings by  Peter Samuelson. 

Published 1987.


Peter Samuelson - a name unknown to most lovers of English art - has been painting and drawing people and scenes from everyday life for many decades. The years after the Second World War were trying times of reconstruction, but also full of hope and adventure. These post-war years had a definite style and ambiance that represented a new and exciting approach - a break from pre-war elitism and an attempt to embrace the everyday person. The war had broken down all sorts of barriers and now for the first time, youth broke through and became the arbiter of taste. Today these pictures from everyday life provoke nostalgia and curiosity, and in their way recreate for us a je-ne-sais-quoi of the times. With an introduction by John Russell Taylor. Very good condition.
