R.B. Kitaj (1932-2007) is one of the most intriguing 20th century artists. Kitaj left behind a manuscript unmatched among 20th-century artist autobiographies -- Confessions of an Old Jewish Painter. Eloquently describing his vices and sufferings, it stands in the traditions of both St. Augustine and Thomas de Quincey.

R B Kitaj (b. 1932) has produced some of the most complex and arresting images of the twentieth century. Born in America, Kitaj has lived half his life in London and was closely involved with the Pop Art movement in the 1960s. The first monograph on Kitaj, this book provides the fullest visual documentation of his work, and arises from an extraordinary series of interviews and letters between the artist and the author. The monograph concludes with a personal testament by Kitaj in the form of prefaces to some of his paintings.
