A collection of fourteen uncredited songs, the first of which, 'On the Asportation of the Scone Stone' has been attributed to MacDiarmid, though not directly by him.

Top edge gilt with new marbled end-papers. Very light toning and the occasional spotting to the text block. Free from inscriptions.

Description:
Graham Sutherland [1903-1980] leading British artist, who began as a printmaker before turning to painting and portraiture, glass and fabrics. A series of eight [8] illuminating unpublished autograph letters, one with small doodles, dating from the 1940's, outlining in some detail his philosophy and practice of art. The letters are all to Michael Rothenstein [1908-1993] artist and printmaker, whose book 'Looking at Paintings' came out in 1947 and featured Graham Sutherland amongst others. In the wake of this publication, I believe Rothenstein may have been considering another book using selective quotes from artists of the day. The letters comprise : 1) 'Autograph letter 2 pages dated Nov 16 1941. 'It was most kind of you to write so appreciatively of my work. So seldom, if at all does one know what sort of effect one's work may have on one's contemporaries. Even if one's work is liked few bother to write - or if they do, seem unable to analyse their reactions - so that you can imagine how grateful I… Read more
