Cedric and Lett: Friends and Lovers: Letters 1922 – 1925 by Diana Grace and Andrew Campbell
Young artists, Cedric Morris and Arthur Lett-Haines, lived, worked and squabbled in Paris and London in the 1920s, a period of intense creativity for them both. This hitherto unpublished selection of letters comes from the years 1920 to 1925 shedding light on a bohemian and nomadic, almost rootless existence amongst a wide circle of friends, lovers and fellow artists. They shed light on the early years of a turbulent relationship which in spite of its vicissitudes, always put art at its centre.
