Product description

David Wolfers (1917-2001), a leading light in London's private gallery community, vigorously promoted modern British figurative art from the outset of his career as an art-dealer in 1968. From its beginnings in London's Mayfair, the New Grafton Gallery actively promoted a cross-section of British artistic talent which included the established names of Elisabeth Frink, Carel Weight, Mary Fedden and John Nash to the emerging talents of Richard Pikesley, Sarah Spencer and Julian Bailey. Moving to Barnes, south-west London, in the early 1980s, the gallery became a mecca for collectors and artists alike and Wolfers remained a hands-on dealer, admired and respected by patrons and artists until his death in 2001. "A Private View" is the realisation of Wolfers' ambition to record his many and varied experiences in the art world. His own memories and anecdotes are edited by Julian Halsby to create a book which illustrates how the gallery was created and sustained to become an important element in the history of post-war British art.
