A GENIUS FOR FAILURE: THE LIFE OF BENJAMIN ROBERT HAYDON
Published by The Bodley Head. 1st. 2009
Fine condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper. The tragedy of Haydon lay in the extent to which his failures were unwittingly engineered by his own actions - his refusal to resort to the painting of fashionable portraits, for example, and his self-destructively acrimonious relationship with the RA. Colour plates. 568 pages.
