The Last Bohemians: The Two Roberts - Colquhoun and MacBryde
Roger Bristow.

2010, hardback, 1st ed, as new copy, illustrated. 416 pages.
Item Description: Sansom & Co. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Last Bohemians: The Two Roberts - Colquhoun and MacBryde, Roger Bristow, The fruit of over twenty years' original research, "The Last Bohemians" is the first full-length biography of two charismatic, talented and ultimately tragic individuals. It dispels many of the negative myths which grew around the pair following their early deaths and re-establishes their reputations as highly significant figures of twentieth-century British art. A rags-to-riches and back-to-rags-again story, "The Last Bohemians" is the account of the lives and time together of the artists who were known in the 1940s as 'The Golden Boys of Bond Street'. T. Born and brought up in Ayrshire to poor, working-class families, Robert Colquhoun and Robert MacBryde met at the Glasgow School of Art in the 1930s. They moved to London in 1941 and quickly became associated with the Neo-Romantic group of painters which included Keith Vaughan and John Minton. At a time when homosexuality was not only illegal but actively persecuted, they made little attempt to disguise their relationship and they had a constant stream of admirers, both male and female. The circle of friends that grew around them included the painters Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Michael Ayrton, John Minton and the poets George Barker and Dylan Thomas, all attending the regular weekend soirees held by The Roberts at their fashionable Kensington studio.
