The 1984 revised edition of Sir John Rothenstein’s pioneering attempt to chronicle the lives of modern English artists.  3 volumes in original pictorial wrappers.  Volume One covers the lives and works of twenty-one artists including William Nicholson, Gwen and Augustus John, Matthew Smith and Wyndham Lewis.  Volume Two covers the lives of nineteen artists including David Bomberg, John Armstrong, Percy Horton, Barnett Freedman, Ceri Richards and Edward Bawden.  Volume Three covers the lives and works of twenty-one artists including Thomas, Hennell, Eric Ravilious, Michael Rothenstein, Alan Reynolds, Elisabeth Frink and Euan Uglow.  Still one of the best sources of information on modern British artists.   Bindings strong and tight.   Volume three housed within a protective mylar cover.  All three volumes show some slight shelf-wear and light foxing to end-papers and edges.  Second volume has the remnants of a price label to top right corner of front cover.  Except for some light pen marks to the margins of a few pages in volume two (text unaffected),  the pages are clean and contents bright and clear.
