From the publisher:
 
“In this book, art historian Elza Miles traces the development of this singular artist, Gladys Mgudlandlu – from her early, meticulously detailed works, evoking the textural richness of embroideries and tapestries, to her landscapes painted from memory and imagination, depicting idyllic rural lifestyles with large, mystical bird forms, and her later works depicting urban scenes and simplification of shapes, enlivened with broad sweeping brushtrokes of colour.”
 
Pairing colour images of Mgudlandlu’s paintings with archival photographs of the artist, this extensive and well-researched book offers comprehensive insight into the life and work of one of South Africa’s most preeminent Expressionists.
