Shortlisted for the Slightly Foxed Best First Biography Prize 2021.

The artist John Craxton was born bohemian, and crafted a life of heroic hedonism. He determined to live and paint in Greece, achieving his aim in the 1940s. Byzantine mosaics, El Greco and Greek culture coloured his work and shaped his life thereafter. Ian Collins captures the charm and many talents of a singular artist and remarkable man.
