The Camberwell School of arts and Crafts is a study of an important British art movement discusses its influence on a wider British art scene. For the young, enthusiastic art students of the late 1940s and 1950s, Camberwell was “the only place to be”.
During the Second World War Victor Pasmore was appointed to a post in the school’s painting department and he in turn brought in William Coldstream and Claude Rogers. It was the influence of these three eminent Euston Roaders which saw the exciting revival of the art school.
Geoff Hassell includes brief biographies of about 300 past pupils and teachers which includes many distinguished, talented and influential artists along with numerous colour plates and previously unpublished photographs.
