Llewellyn Xavier: His Life and Work
introduction by Edward Lucie-Smith

9" x 11" • 218 pages • color photographs and illustrations throughout
ISBN 9781405086493 • hardback • $50.00

Llewellyn Xavier: His Life and Work is an in-depth retrospective of St Lucia's pre-eminent visual artist. Born in St Lucia, Xavier has spent more than half his life travelling the globe gaining rich and rewarding visual experience: from early representational oils, through work addressing racial and political themes in the 1960s to more 'abstract‘ series of watercolors, oils and collages drawing on Arawak and ancient myths, and celebrating the natural world. The work mirrors his love of the planet and no place more so than his native Pitons, icons of color and light. Xavier now lives and works with his characteristic abundant energy on the beautiful island of St Lucia - his Eden - supporting political and environmental issues close to his heart.

The 360 color plates in Llewellyn Xavier: His Life and Work are complemented by a commentary from the artist himself, an introduction by the eminent art critic and historian Edward Lucie-Smith and a foreward by Lowery Stokes Sims, expert in 20th Century Art and trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Edward Lucie-Smith is an internationally known art critic and historian with more than a hundred books to his name. He has acted as curator for many exhibitions and lectured extensively all over the world. He was born in Kingston, Jamaica.
