Letter from Adrian Stokes to Herbert Read, July 04, 1961


Part of a collection of correspondence between Adrian Stokes and Herbert Read spanning from 1934-1962. Stokes was a painter and art critic who also had an interest in psychoanalysis. It was largely due to his efforts and work that the small fishing port of St. Ives became a centre of modernist art culture. In this letter, Stokes discusses a "Beauty and the Beast" essay Read has sent him, and psychoanalysis. Includes a portion of the essay on a separate strip of paper.
