Woodcock, John

Tagged: Art

(1927-2017) UK painter and illustrator, active from around 1945; the colour-dense blocks and patterns of his work usually unpack into symbolic but moderately telling representation; it may seem surprising – given his continuing activity until near his death – that he did not publish more prolifically. All the same he produced covers for several authors with entries in this encyclopedia, including Jocelyn Brooke, Susan Cooper, Aldous Huxley and Charles Eric Maine. [JC]
