After art critic Edward Fisher died, author Giles Ward discovered a lifetime’s collection of notes and transcripts the writer had made in preparation for his biography of controversial twentieth-century British artist Wallace Slade. Fisher’s biography reveals previously undisclosed details, often shocking, of the artist’s personal life, his tangled loves, powerful artworks, and the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death. Based on interviews covering a twenty-six year period - from 1963 to the very day of the artist’s death in 1989 - much of this material has never been published and reveals a deeply personal lifelong relationship between Fisher and Slade. Where Beauty Is explores the dangers involved when such a relationship between a critic and his subject becomes too close.

About the Author

Edward Fisher (1941-1989) was a British art critic and writer. He began his career at the Shoreditch Gazette and his work featured in the Artists’ Review and The Times. In his work, Fisher analysed new trends as well as neglected styles, such as realism; however, his main preoccupation was the work of prominent and controversial British artist Wallace Slade. Fisher’s major study of Slade was left unfinished at the time of his death, which shortly followed that of the artist.
