Sinopsis: Roy Newby (1912 - 2011) was a commercial artist, illustrator and painter who lived and worked in London for most of the twentieth century. Written by his son, Public & Private: the arts of Roy Newby takes us back to a time before the First World War and spans a century of image-making. His story is of a modest man with a vivid, resilient talent. For many decades, he made drawings for the stories in children's comics and teenage magazines, his work seen and enjoyed by countless young people. When he could find the time, however, Roy Newby also drew and painted for himself. His was an art which remained mainly private yet, as this book illustrates, which achieved a quality many more should see and enjoy. The contrast is telling between his need to meet professional necessities and the determination to explore his personal practice. With over 120 illustrations, half in full colour.
