Fried Eggs in Brine
An illustrated nonsense book: “The drawings and paintings in Fried Eggs in Brine show us, if we needed to be shown, that things don't come much dafter than war. They also demonstrate that the necessarily palatable nature, of much of Slater's commissioned work, is only part of the picture.” Robert Mason Paul Slater is one of Britain's most popular and highly regarded artist / illustrators. He has been described as a great example of an illustrator whose work exudes personal authorship with original perceptions and intelligence. Paul works in the traditional pictorial way, employing formidable draughtsmanship and academic painting skills.
