“This second volume of John Rothenstein’s autobiography, which deals chiefly with the first sixteen years of his directorship of the Tate, begins with his taking up of his duties in 1938, when he faced a discouraging situation. The Gallery’s administration had collapsed the previous year; there was no official purchasing grant; the Turner Bequest was in lamentable condition and largely unknow; the leading artist of the emerging generation, Moore, Nicholson, David Jones and others were unrepresented.” Condition: some light spotting to prelims and fore-edge. dust-wrapper a lightly creased to top of spine, otherwise very good.
