In One Day, Something Happens: Paintings of People Jennifer Higgie, the renowned writer and critic, presents a highly personal selection of figurative paintings from the Arts Council Collection, one of the world’s largest collections of modern and contemporary British art. Through these works, Higgie teases out common themes, from joy and loneliness to storytelling and theatricality, exploring the limits of painting and figurative representation.

One Day, Something Happens presents a personal journey through contemporary figurative art, and includes an illuminating essay by Higgie, alongside interviews in which she discusses the practice of figurative paintings with five of the featured artists.

Artists included in this publication are: Eileen Agar, Michael Andrews, Liz Arnold, Walter Bayes, Peter Blake, Glenn Brown, Jeffery Camp, Steven Claydon, Prunella Clough, Robert Colquhoun, Enrico David, Milena Dragicevic, Malcolm Drummond, Lucian Freud, Michael Fullerton, Katharine Graham, Alasdair Gray, Roy Grayson, Richard Hamilton, Georgia Hayes, David Hockney, Donna Huddleston, Jock McFadyen, Katy Moran, Ryan Mosley, David Noonan, Paula Rego, Ceri Richards, William Roberts, Bob Robinson, Walter Sickert, Renee So, Euan Uglow, Peter Unsworth, Phoebe Unwin, Barbara Walker, Martin Westwood, Alfred Wolmark, Rose Wylie and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
