Leonard Squirrell, the 'grand old man' of East Anglian painting who died in 1979, was known and loved by many people well outside the boundaries of east Anglia and adored tremendously by many, many more as an outstanding topographical artist. Already Squirrell's works are becoming collectors' items for he is ranked by collectors and connoisseurs with John Sell Cotman, Girton, Wilson Steer (who taught him), C.H. Baskett and other famous East Anglian artists. This volume explores the relationship between Leonard Squirrell and the artists of the Norwich School, with a brief history of the school and identification of Squirrell's work with that of some of its artists. The work of John Sell Cotman is considered in depth and its influence on Leonard Squirrell, an influence that manifested itself in such a way that both painters retain complete individuality. In some ways, perhaps, a controversial book, but one which casts a new light on the 'grand old man' and his unique artistic legacy.
