Author Gill Hedley
Published by Bloomsbury 2020
Picaresque and tragic by turns, packed full of incident, Gill Hedley has breathed new life into a near-forgotten figure.
Soon not to have heard of Arthur Jeffress will be seen as betraying a shameful ignorance of our art historical past.
Arthur’s enigmatically tragic life needed to be told with all its astonishing contradictions and variety.
This book has achieved exactly that.
