Duncan Grant


Roger Fry


Although Woolmer lists no such series in his appendix to his Checklist to the Hogarth Press, and although it appears that no further books exist in the series, Fry's Duncan Grant is described as a "Living Painters" book. Fry's study of Grant's art attempts to explain the value of his work. Ultimately, Fry decides that Grant's work is appealing because it is "entirely natural and unaffected" and because of its spontaneous and charming character. Fry suggests that Grant's oeuvre itself has a "personality" quite apart from that of the artist. The book is listed in the Complete Catalogue of 1939 under Duncan Grant's name, perhaps because the illustration plates are of Grant's own art.
