Summary
A groundbreaking reassessment of English cultural life in the thirties and forties. In the 1930s and 1940s, while the battles for modern art and modern society were being fought in Paris and Spain, it seemed to some a betrayal that John Betjeman and John Piper were in love with a provincial world of old churches and tea shops
Summary
Alexandra Harris presents a confident case for the interest and importance of the English arts during the Modern period. She examines the work of writers, painters, gardeners, architects, critics and composers, some well known and some almost forgotten
