ISBN: 9781906690656
AUTHOR: Jenny Pery
Raphael Maklouf
Raphael Maklouf
  • Description

In a remarkably varied career spanning over six decades, Raphael Maklouf has been both artist and businessman, sculptor and minter.

His many portrait busts include that of Queen Elizabeth II, whose effigy he designed for the British coinage. His numerous commissions for commemorative medallions led to the founding of his private mint. Tower Mint, established forty years ago, is expanding and thriving.

This copiously illustrated biography traces Raphael Maklouf’s ancestry and early years in Palestine, the development of his artistic career at Camberwell College of Art under the tutelage of the eminent Czech sculptor Dr Karel Vogel, and the extraordinary chain of coincidences that led to the founding of Tower Mint.

This engaging account by Jenny Pery gives a vivid insight into Raphael Maklouf‘s unusual family background and the influences that have formed his beliefs and his artistic and business practices.

Jenny Pery was born in Calcutta, India. She studied Russian and French at Oxford University, and raised her family in Argyll, Scotland, before taking further degrees in Fine Art in London and Exeter. Now an author and art historian, Pery has written numerous titles on British art, including monographs and books on the painters Solomon J Solomon RA, Claude Rogers OBE, Tristram Hillier RA, John Dodgson, Caziel, Edward Piper, Anthony Eyton RA, Daphne Todd OBE, Benedict Rubbra, Robert Organ, Francis Hewlett and Alan Cotton; the sculptors Bridget McCrum and Dominic Welch; and also on six contemporary wood engravers.

Pery now lives permanently on Dartmoor, Devon, where she intersperses writing with painting and print making in her studios.
