A major monograph, fully illustrated in colour throughout, to accompany the critically acclaimed centenary retrospective at Towner, Eastbourne, and City Art Centre, Edinburgh, in 2015.


"Andrew Lambirth's exhaustive, lavishly illustrated book, which is admirable for the depth of its reserach, accounting for nearly every significant painting the artist made, and identifying the hose of influences that went into the making of them (and Gear was an absorbent assimilator of influences, from the Byzantine period onwards), should do much to restore this important artist's place among British abstract painters."  Times Literary Supplement


"It is a very useful book and much needed ... the biographical parts are excellent and full of information. The book is well illustrated and so will do an excellent job in bringing Gear's work before a wider audience." The Scotsman


"Andrew Lambirth's William Gear is by far the most ambitious book yet published on this notable Scottish painter." Print Quarterly
