Descripción

British industrial designer (1895-1961); Chief Instructor, Design, Royal College of Art, 1925-35. The two carbons to Capey from Luckhurst, one page, 12mo; the other three letters, one page, quarto. All very good, though somewhat dusty and lightly creased, and with staple holes to the top left-hand corners. Throwing useful light on the state of post-war art education, the correspondence concerns a request to Luckhurst from 'one-time Fellow of the Society' Hollewell for 'information and advice in regard to my daughter's future training'. 'She is now nearly 17 years of age, is attending the local High School and shows exceptional aptitude in Art. [.] | I suppose that commercial art is the most suitable for lucrative employment, but I should be pleased to have your views on this.' Luckhurst writes to Capey that Hollewell's letter 'asks for advice which I always find it very difficult to give'. Capey suggests sending Hollewell the Royal College of Art prospectus, and informing him that 'Any art student, who is proposing to make a profession of art, should safeguard his or her future by obtaining a degree. The Royal College of Art is the main recognised Institution for this purpose. There are others such as Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Dundee Colleges, but the degrees offered by them are not of much consequence. | Of the schools suggested by Mr. Hollewell, the Slade is essentially Painting. The Chelsea Art School and the Colleges at Birmingham, Leicester and Nottingham are good of their kind, but I would suggest that for general purposes the London Central School of Arts and Crafts is second best to the Royal College of Art.' Luckhurst incorporates this information in his reply to Hollewell, and thanks Capey in his second letter to him. N° de ref. de la librería 4154
