Glyn Philpot (1884–1937) was a key figure in Modern British art in the first half of the twentieth century. His work spans Arts and Crafts illustration, Edwardian ‘Swagger’ portraiture, Symbolism, and Art Deco Modernism. Drawing on new research and recently rediscovered paintings and archive material, Glyn Philpot looks at the artist's career from early works comprising more traditional formal portraiture through to modernism in the 1920s and 30s. Exploring Philpot’s engagement with international modernism, it looks at his exposure to American art and the Harlem Renaissance, Neue Sachlichkeit in Berlin and the impact of living and working in Paris, especially the work of Rodin, Matisse, Picasso and Cocteau. It also considers Philpot’s work in the light of recent queer theory and writing on race, discussing Philpot’s impact on queer writers and artists, including more recent works by Isaac Julien—in particular his film ‘Looking for Langston’—and writers such as Booker Prize winner Alan Hollinghurst.
