Bonjour, messieurs: Robinson & Inshaw

Bonjour Mr Inshaw. Poems by Peter Robinson. Paintings by David Inshaw (2020)
Client: Two Rivers Press, 2019

Bonjour Mr Inshaw is a homage by the award-winning poet Peter Robinson to David Inshaw, the celebrated painter, whom he first met during the artist’s years as Creative Arts Fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge, in the mid-1970s.

Robinson’s poems combine memories of Inshaw’s paintings, or characteristic landscapes, with experiences of his company and conversation, presented in an en face format.
