David Milne (1882?1953) has long been recognized as one of the world's most innovative painters. Though major exhibitions have been devoted to his paintings and prints, his brilliant watercolors, arguably his most important works, have never been revealed in depth. This lavishly illustrated book, featuring essays and an annotated chronology by seven Milne experts, will accompany the first major traveling exhibition of his work. As well as introducing Milne to new audiences, both exhibition and book are designed to reposition him as a leading figure in the history of 20th-century artists.
