First edition, published by Thomas Nelson and Sons Ltd, London, 1965

Private View is a strikingly important document of modern British art and key artists working in Britain during the 1960s. Page after page we are greeted with incredibly distinctive photographs of artists and work in their houses and studios, with beautiful reproductions of the works themselves. From Paolozzi to Sutherland to Frink to Caulfield, the sheer breadth of style alone is impressive. This comprehensive book is a result of several years collaboration between Lord Snowdon, then artistic advisor at The Sunday Times and one of the world’s greatest photographers, Bryan Robertson, who was Director of the Whitechapel Art Gallery, and art historian and critic, John Russell.

Condition: Near fine, very few signs of age. Stored in black ‘International book society/ Time-Life Books’ slipcase.
