Penguin Modern Painters

pmp1pmp2pmp3The Penguin Modern Painters series dates from the late forties, and has seen three designs, all oversized and containing color photographs of the artists’ works. The original series was hardbound with stapled bindings, but later series were converted to paperback. Though I can confirm the authors and the number of total books in the series, I cannot put down a definite number for the books on William Nicholson, Hopper and Braque.

1 Henry Moore  Geoffrey Grigson
2 Graham Sutherland  Edward Sackville-West
3 Duncan Grant  Raymond Mortimer
4 Paul Nash  Sir Herbert Edward Read
5 Matthew Smith  Philip Hendy
6 John Piper  John Betjeman
7 Edward Burra  John Rothenstein
8 Victor Pasmore  Clive Bell
9 Edward Bawden  J. M. Richards
10 Stanley Spencer  Eric Newton
11 Ben Shahn  James Thrall Soby
12 William Nicholson?  Robert Nichols
13 Ben Nicholson  John Summerson
14 Frances Hodgkins  Myfanwy Evans
15 David Jones  Robin Ironside
16 Paul Klee  Douglas Cooper
17 Ivon Hitchens  Patrick Heron
18 Edward Hopper  Lloyd Goodrich
19 Braque  John Richardson
