Eileen Agar, Angel of Anarchy 

Throughout her pioneering seventy-year career, Eileen Agar (b.1899, Buenos Airies–d.1991, London) brought together the abstract qualities of Cubism with the anarchic tendencies of Surrealism. Her unique style nimbly spanned painting, collage, photography and sculpture. Combining order and chaos, Agar's work fuses imagery from classical art, ancient mythologies and the natural world.

This comprehensive catalogue explores Agar's work through essays by Andrew Lambirth, Laura Smith, Grace Storey and Marina Warner, as well as new poetry by Daisy Lafarge. Including full colour illustrations of all exhibited works, archival sketches, experimental collages and exhibition ephemera, the book also features a selection of previously unpublished writings by Agar.
