Charlotte Verity’s paintings come about slowly during many hours of intense looking and close observation. She is preoccupied by the changing nature of the visual world, natural light and the passing seasons.

This volume offers great insight into a body of work from the last five years. ‘In these paintings’, writes Edmund de Waal, ‘the seasons ebb is marked. They are a calendar, a series of poems tracing one full moment and then another.’


Accompanied by 37 images, this volume includes an in-depth conversation between Garry Fabian Miller and the artist; 'Verity’s Sky', an essay by Paul Hills about the importance of light in her work; and Edmund de Waal's incisive and poetic response to her paintings.



Paul Hills is Professor Emeritus at the Courtauld Institute, and is author of Light in Early Italian Painting (1987). Garry Fabian Miller is an artist using camera-less photography to explore the nature and possibilities of light. Edmund de Waal is an artist whose books have won numerous awards.
