'Ralph Rumney (5 June 1934, Newcastle Upon Tyne - 6 March 2002, Manosque, Provence). A key figure in post-war European art, Ralph Rumney, at the start of the 21st century, is living and working in the South of France. Numerous exhibitions of his paintings have taken place throughout Europe since his first solo show in 1956, including two major retrospectives in Paris (1999) and Halifax (2000).
Ralph Rumney is the only British founder-member of Situationist International.

In 1957 he co-founded the London Psychogeographical Association. This organization was, along with COBRA and the Lettrist International, However, within seven months Rumney had been 'amiably' expelled from the SI by Debord, for allegedly "failing to hand in a psychogeography report about Venice on time." He spent much of his life living as a wanderer.

This volume contains over 100 illustrations, many of which have not been previously reproduced. This work is an interaction between an artist and an art historian. Based largely on a series of interviews, Ralph Rumney's extraordinary life is commented on in relation to his work over 45 years. Their conversations explore notable figures, artistic movements, political events and remarkable anecdotes.'
