B.S Huntbach is also known as The Sussex Surrealist. This fascinating book is an insight into his life and work and is written by his daughter, Christiane.
Barrie Sydney Huntbach was born in Nottingham in 1935 and fairly soon after the family moved to the Sussex coast where he spent the rest of his life. Christiane talks us through his early years and about his marriage to her mother and birth of his children. The main part of the book though is about his art and about his quest to have his artwork displayed and enjoyed.
To give you an idea of the scale of Huntbach's range of work: Christiane has a drawing of his that is 60 feet long and 40in wide called The Temptation of St Anthony; can you imagine the size of this drawing! Many of Barrie's works were religious themed. This epic took seven weeks to complete and was displayed at the Education Centre in Hove. Christiane has this drawing amongst the many examples of his work still owned by the family; but it is so long it is difficult to photograph.
