The Restless Wave : My Two Lives with John Bellany, Paperback / softback Book

The Restless Wave : My Two Lives with John Bellany Paperback / softback


Helen Bellany, twice married to the artist John Bellany, recalls their lives together in Scotland, London, and Italy, John's rise from poverty and obscurity to worldwide recognition, and the human cost inherent in creating great art.

The sea was in both their hearts and in John's work from its earliest stages.

From there, he deepened into a profound exploration of the human condition.

The Restless Wave reflects the mystery, poetry and passion that was at the core of the inner life John and Helen shared.

The couple had great friendships with such fellow artists as David Bowie, and John painted such internationally known figures as Billy Connelly, Sean Connery and Peter Maxwell Davis, as well as many portraits of his muse, Helen.
