Description - The Remarkable Life of Jago Stone: Once a Burglar, Always an Artist by Rob Donovan

The Remarkable Life of Jago Stone tells of the life and times of the prize-winning burglar-turned-international artist, Jago Stone (1928-88). It is a fascinating story of a charismatic rebel who enjoyed tilting at the windmills of conformity. This is not, however, a conventional biography. As the author writes: 'I have chosen to tell Jago's story through the filter of my own journey of discovery since 1976. The book does not have a linear plot; as new material has come to light through my research, my central role has been to bring this material together in a coherent and readable way. This is a real-time detective story that I am inviting you, the reader, to share.'
Scores of homes in both England and the U.S.A. have one or more Jago Stone paintings proudly displayed. Jago's travels as the 'Gypsy Artist' brought him into contact with many English families and the families of American aircrew stationed in the UK who took their Jagos back across the Pond. Jago lived - and through his art still lives - on both sides of the Atlantic.
