Published in May 2013 by the Royal Academy, Chris Orr and Robert Hewison explore the influences and experiences that have shaped Orr’s work from his early experiments as a student in the 1960’s to his later innovations in lithography, silkscreen and etching. It examines his significant contribution as a painter, printmaker and teacher. Illustrated with 175 colour images from his career, and with a foreword by the actor, writer, traveller, and long-time friend Michael Palin, this book offers an insightful and entertaining portrait of Chris Orr.
