5 British Sculptors (Work and Talk)

SIGNED to the title page by Barbara Hepworth . “for Janet and Roger Slack / with love and thanks from Barbara / St Ives, January 1965”.

 

Dr Roger Slack was Barbara Hepworth’s GP and long time friend …

“There can never have been a physician with such an illustrious clientele of artistic patients. Not only Hepworth and Nicholson but also Peter Lanyon, Patrick Heron, Bryan Wynter, Terry Frost, Tony O’Malley, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and the poet Sydney Graham. Roger accumulated many of their works, testifying to their affection and appreciation. He was also a keen sculptor, and Hepworth even shared some of her precious marble with him.”  Guardian – Dr Slack’s obituary

A very good copy.  Acetate dust cover slightly chipped
