About the artist
Tom Lubbock (1958 – 2011) was the chief art critic of The Independent (UK) from 1997, and worked in newspapers, as a critic and an illustrator, for the past 25 years. His recent art writing includes monographs on the 19th-century engraver Thomas Bewick and the contemporary British painter Carol Rhodes as well as the weekly Great Works column for The Independent. Tom began working as a comedy writer and art critic for radio, television and newspapers in 1985, appearing on BBC2's The Late Show and writing for the short-lived Sunday Correspondent, among others. He has written major catalogue essays on Goya (2001) and Ian Hamilton Finlay (2002) and has also completed book-length works - The Donkey's Head, on 17th-century painting, Great Works, a collection of essays to be published in 2011 by Frances Lincoln, and an anthology of English graphic art. In November 2010, his essay, When Words Failed Me, was published in the Observer. This is part of a longer memoir that is a record of and reflection upon the progress of his life and illness since being diagnosed with a brain tumor in September 2008.
