30.11.2020 – The Dennis Creffield estate is pleased to be working with the publishers, Lund Humphries, on a major new monograph dedicated to Creffield’s life and work. We are actively looking for artworks to illustrate in the book that were acquired prior to 2015 as well as photographs of Creffield across his long life which might be relevant to the book’s narrative. We invite collectors who own major works to contact Jamie Anderson at Waterhouse & Dodd (Jamie@waterhousedodd.com) with information.*
Dennis Creffield is one of the most distinctive, if still undervalued, artists of the post-war period, admired and collected by other artists (from R.B. Kitaj to Henri Cartier–Bresson), major architects, novelists and playwrights. His work is also held by important collections from the Tate to Los Angeles County Museum of Art, from the British Museum to the collection of a Japanese Bank. The range of his mark making, the richness of his subject matter, his engagement not only with earlier art but with music, literature and religion, all combine to give his work its unique qualities. This site is an introduction to the extraordinary versatility of his career.
*We cannot guarantee all submissions will appear in the book. All submissions of artworks for consideration will only be shared between the author, publisher and estate. Contact details will not be stored by the estate or by Waterhouse & Dodd on any mailing list or database (or passed on at all to the author or publisher) unless the sender expressly agrees to it in compliance with GDPR regulations.
