A Lesson in Art and Life: The Colourful World of Cedric Morris and Arthur Lett Haines
Morris and Haines founded the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing in Suffolk, attended by Lucian Freud and Maggi Hambling. The atmosphere was described as `robust and coarse, exquisite and sensitive all at once, also faintly dangerous.' The conversation was sometimes bawdy and bitchy but never boring.
Cedric Morris became an award-winning plantsman and poppy iris breeder. He was an acknowledged influence on Beth Chatto amongst others.
A Lesson in Art and Life is a long overdue biography of a couple who were hugely influential across the spheres of art, gardening and cookery.
