Synopsis

The self-taught artist and illustrator is known for his meticulously painted gouaches that blend painstaking realism and wild fantasy, sometimes wandering into historical satire that the artist views as parodying nostalgia itself. Take for instance, the pre-Titanic-mania work R.M.S. Tyrannic, The Biggest Thing in All the World (1973), with the copy line, "The ship is so safe that she carries no insurance." Those who remember this quirky and delicious pastime called Zany Afternoons (and have had trouble finding the first edition) will relish it. Those who have never had the pleasure, will delight in discovering the zany world of Bruce McCall
