Groovy Bob (Paperback)

Harriet Vyner


Acclaimed on first publication, Harriet Vyner's 'Groovy Bob' is the cult biography of hedonistic gallery owner Robert Fraser and a dazzling evocation of 1960s culture and counter-culture.Taste-maker, heroin addict and promiscuous homosexual, Fraser astonished London with the artists he introduced: Andy Warhol, Peter Blake, Claes Oldenburg, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Told through the voices of those who knew him best-Paul McCartney, Richard Hamilton, Mick Jagger, Bridget Riley, Keith Richards, Kenneth Anger, Malcolm McLaren and Vyner herself-'Groovy Bob' is a brilliant biography and a searing portrait of the most exhilarating period in post-war British social history. This republication features a new afterword by the author and colour plates including works from the major exhibition A 'Strong Sweet Smell of Incense: A Portrait of Robert Fraser', curated by Vyner and Brian Clarke at Pace London, 2015.
