Maurice Yacowar, The Great Bratby: A Portrait of John Bratby, R.A., Middlesex University Press, 2008, p.66, illustrated.
The present work was one of several commissioned for Ronald Neame's 1958 Oscar nominated film, The Horse's Mouth, based on the novel of the same title by Joyce Cary. Bratby's paintings were used as the work of Cary's passionate and deeply idiosyncratic artist hero, Gulley Jimson, played in the film by Alec Guinness and Bratby considered these pieces as amongst his best work.
