Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Arnold Henry Savage Landor (1865-1924) was a painter, explorer, writer and anthropologist, born in Florence. His grandfather, Walter Savage Landor, had been a celebrated poet and writer, himself living for long periods in Florence. Henry Savage Landor led an intense and adventurous life. There remain above all his vivacious paintings, documents of extreme human and artistic interest, scenes inspired by the daily life of distant peoples, ever expressed with a purity of tender and vivid colours and with an acute spirit of observation and great immediacy. His autobiography Everywhere: The Memoirs of an Explorer (1924), written in a pleasing and passionate way, is an extraordinary document of a life lived intensely, a witness to the history and customs of far away people of the last two decades of the nineteenth century and the first twenty years of the twentieth one. Among his other famous works are: Alone with the Hairy Ainu (1893), Corea or Cho-sen: The Land of the Morning Calm (1895), and In the Forbidden Land (1898).
