The book contains four essays, ‘Sargy Mann, Euan Uglow and Subjective Realism; the Revolutionary Achievement of Modern British Painting’ by Robert Pepperell. ‘Beyond Appearance’ by Jo Volley. ‘Sargy Mann and Euan Uglow: Getting the Measure of Perception’ by George Mather, and ‘It starts with an Idea’ by Jenny Gleadell.

Each of the essays looks at how these two artists dedicated themselves to making work about direct perceptual experiences. Arriving at very different results but ultimately coming from a very similar desire.

‘When I first went to art school in 1960 I met remarkable painter teachers, notably Dick Lee, Euan Uglow and Frank Auerbach who said to me ‘we will not teach you how to paint, but we can teach you through the practice of painting and drawing to see more, to see better; if you look at the real world in front of you as intensely and as freely from visual preconceptions as you can and try to record as truthfully as you can what that experience is, you will in time see more, see better.’ Sargy Mann

The book has colour illustrations of every painting from the exhibition as well as a complete photographic record of the exhibition.
