Kochi, 1983. A month short of his seventh birthday, Edmund Thomas Clint dies. The only son of MT Joseph and Chinnamma Joseph, the boy leaves behind a whopping 25,000 paintings that he created during his short lifetime. From chalks to crayons to watercolours, Clint used every possible medium to create drawings and paintings that depicted the world as he saw it, leaving art admirers and critics stunned at his maturity and convinced about his artistic genius. Despite being diagnosed with a debilitating kidney disease at the age of three, how did Clint manage to relentlessly create art on themes as deep and intense as death, solitude and love? What made Nature his key inspiration stimulate him to draw for hours together, often deep into the night and sometimes until daybreak? A Brief Hour of Beauty is a moving account of Clint's life, the world he lived in and how he celebrated them both through his art. Author Ammu Nair captures the brilliance of Clint's craft and traces his life and swift evolution as a master artist from the very beginning till the end.
