A definitive study of the art and life of Gwen John. Langdale brings an intensely private John out of the shadow of her brother, Augustus, and her lover, Rodin. John's artistic development is examined, touching on her childhood, her time at the Slade, her connections within her brother's artistic circle and her life in Paris. All of John's paintings are listed as well as a good selection of drawings.
