Bath Academy of Art, Corsham in the early 1950s was unique: a progressive liberal arts college with a small student body, housed in a splendid country house and taught by staff who were to figure among the great names of 20th-century British art, including Terry Frost, William Scott, Bryan Wynter and Peter Lanyon. Robin Jesson was one of those early students, and this is his memoir of the heady days when art students expected to make their careers as fine artists, and enjoyed an enviably high level of personal attention. Including photographs of the staff, students and activities of the time, this is an intriguing glimpse into a long-lost form of artistic training.
