Review of new book on Bryan Robertson

I have recently written a review of The Life of Bryan, Andrew Lambirth’s new book about gallery director, curator and writer Bryan Robertson, famous for his transformation of London’s Whitechapel Gallery in the 1950s and 60s. My review will feature in a forthcoming edition of The Art Newspaper. The book is to be published by Unicorn Press at the end of this month.
