‘Private View is a new kind of book about a new situation. It is the first book ever to tell how London became, with Paris and New York, one of the world’s three capitals of art, how the creative dynamism of British art came to dominate the international scene.

Eighty one painters and sculptors, ranging from Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Francis Bacon and Graham Sutherland through the new generation typified by R B Kitaj, David Hockney and Bridget Riley and, beyond, to the next generation fresh from art school, are studied in cole up. The inner politics and machinery of the art world, the schools and teachers, the galleries and dealers, the critics and the trend setters are also shown as part of the lively, complex organism that is British art today.’

Very good copy in original dust jacket. The dust jacket has some minor wear and small chip to the bottom of the back panel
