A comprehensive companion to the work of the artist Peter Coker, this volume presents an authorised biography, with two additional essays on specific aspects of the artist’s life and work. It also contains a catalogue raisonné, a list of exhibitions and sketchbooks, an inventory of public collections containing his works and a select bibliography.

Born in London in 1926, Coker first studied art at St Martin's School of Art while working at Odhams Press (1941-1943), a leading publisher of instruction manuals and children's books, and returned as a full-time student (1947-1950) after serving in the Second World War. Coker's essential role as a landscape painter originated in a trip to Paris in 1950; by the middle of that decade he was an established landscapist in the French manner.
