Amazing. ‘How’ could one man, the sole heir to a textile fortune but also at times public servant & educator accumulate so much art of exceptional quality to easily fill Tate Britain’s galleries?
The exhibition details Clark’s activities in the 1930s and 1940s when he was also leading supporter and promoter of contemporary British art and artists. Astounding and irritating in equal measure, it left me needing to home and kneed some bread. . .
