Angels is a 52 page introductory volume to the works of the visionary artist, philosopher, teacher Cecil Collins (1908-1989), widely regarded as England's most important visionary artist since William Blake. It differs from all other published work on Cecil Collins in that it focuses on his teaching and is small enough to be carried everywhere. An opening to Collins' vision and a brief biography of Collins precedes the address he was invited to give on angels. This address is offered here for the first time in its original form and carries a pertinent message for today's world. With discernment and objectivity Collins explains the imbalance and divisions in contemporary society, throwing light on the root cause of much confusion, conflict and loneliness. He offers hope and points the way towards universal consciousness. His ideas are conveyed in simple language with clarity and certainty. Elegantly presented, this pocket volume provides food for thought. It is an invaluable document not only for people interested in this artist but also for those concerned with a rejoinder to the imminent crisis facing humanity While the Tate Gallery houses a permanent a body of his work, he is widely represented in many smaller museums and galleries throughout Britain, Angels is a simple introduction to Collins and provides a clear idea of his two major themes: the Fool and the Angel. There are six illustrations and a foreword by Jonathan Stedall, the filmmaker, who worked with Collins over a number of years.
