This is the first monograph on Sheila Girling, a prolific painter who worked consistently for 30 years in her studio in Camden Town, London.

Sheila Girling considered herself to be an abstract painter, although there are sometimes figurative allusions and references in her paintings. Her colourful work has been exhibited widely in Europe, America and Canada.

This book examines the evolution of Sheila Girling's paintings, beginning with the prize-winning works from the Royal Academy Schools and ending with the present-day collages. Hannah Westley had a close relationship with both Girling and Girling's husband (Anthony Caro), and she used this to write a sympathetic and insightful account of a talented artist.
