Adrian Stokes (1902-72) – aesthete, critic, painter and poet – is among the most original and creative writers on art of the twentieth century. He was the author of over twenty critical books and numerous papers: for example, the remarkable series of books published in the 1930s: “The Quattro Cento” (1932), “Stones of Rimini” (1934), and “Colour and Form” (1937) that embraced Mediterranean culture and modernity. This volume explores the crucial experiences through which this architectonic awareness evolved; traces the influence upon Stokes of places, texts and personalities, and examines how his theory of art developed and matured.
