Gathering notice in newspapers under the headlines “He paints to Rock and Roll”, Robyn Denny became one of the leading London painters in the 1960s – a pioneer of a significant kind of Hard Edge abstraction which was distinctly different to the dominant American abstraction of the time.

Yet for more than a quarter of a century now, the course of Denny’s work has been publicly uncharted. But just as there is currently under way a more considered historical reassessment of twentieth century abstract art, so Denny’s extraordinary odyssey – through his idiosyncratic Action painting, Hard Edge, and Postmodern lyrical-colourism – is finally being rediscovered. This publication will re-examine the little known Denny of the late 70s to the present, setting it alongside his more renowned painting from the 60s. The book will give context and a frame of critical understanding to the career of one of the most elusive figures in the art of the last half century.
