British painter Steven Heffer has lived and worked in London and East Sussex, and both places have provided inspiration for his paintings, which include landscapes, seascapes, and abstracts. The River Thames, London canals, and the coast and rivers of East Sussex feature prominently in many of his works. As well, the industrial buildings along the Thames estuary and the sea and cliffs in and around Eastbourne and the Cuckmere Valley are important subjects. But despite his extensive artistic output, there has not been a complete study of his work until now.
 
This book offers the first comprehensive retrospective of Heffer’s paintings, spanning over twenty years of his art practice. Written by leading art historian Edward Lucie-Smith, it provides an exploration of the British artistic relationship to landscape within the context of Heffer’s work and places his work within the continuing story of British art.
