The New Format
GO TO BAYNARD I
The Design and Industries As
sociation is a thoroughly worthy
concern, and deserves support from
everyone who can afford it.
We cannot help thinking that
this may seem an odder war to
posterity, when they see it repro
duced in the drawings of Edward
Bawden and Eric Ravilious. Those
masters in pastiche are scarcely the
conventional idea of war artists, but
both Bawden and Ravilious have
shown that they can capture the
sombre side of life as well as the
lighter side. Barnett Freedman,
another choice, has shown what he
can do with war scenes in his
drawings for Siegfried Sassoon's
Memoirs of an Infantry Officer
(these drawings were done, we
believe, without first-class acquaint
ance with the front line). Paul
Nash is also down, and we may
expect some of those macabre
studies for which he was famous
during the last war.
R. G. Eves, R.A., is already en
gaged upon his portrait of General
Gamelinthis should be an im
pressive painting and highly useful
for propaganda purposes, for this
war, so far, has been singularly
lacking in first-class portraits of the
men whose prominence should in
time equal that of the almost
legendary Foch and Kitchener.
I like your new cover, and I also
like very much the typographical
arrangement of the inside. It has
a nice rational orderly look, which
I think is most appropriate when
dealing with subjects which too
often lack this very quality.
I am delighted with the last
number of Art and Industry.
One looked at its new format with
misgivings, but it seemed as if you
and your contributors had made up
your minds that where quantity
failed quality would be twice as
good. AH honour to youand long
may it continue.
I may say that Art and Industry
and The Studio are looked forward
to by my pupils as much as by
myself, and our copies (well-
thumbed though they may be) are
carefully filed for reference.
All success to you in these trying
times. Do keep Art and Industry
going, and we'll bless you.
