NAT TATE: AN AMERICAN ARTIST – WILLIAM BOYD

85.00

First edition hardcover, 21 publishing, 1998.

A biographical account of the work of Nat Tate, his life and tragic end. David Bowie writes, "William Boyd's description of Tate's working procedure is so vivid that it convinces me that the small oil I picked up on Prince Street, New York, in the late '60s must indeed be one of the lost Third Panel Triptychs. The great sadness of this quiet and moving monograph is that the artist's most profound dread – that God will make you an artist but only a mediocre artist – did not in retrospect apply to Nat Tate."

This book is a work of satire, a work of art in itself by William Boyd with help from David Bowie.
