A Room to Live In is a celebration of a unique place in British art. Kettle’s Yard was the Cambridge home of Jim Ede, the visionary collector and curator, who opened his doors to generations of students and art lovers. To mark Kettle’s Yard’s first 50 years, and its lasting legacy, this anthology brings together an extraordinary group of writers, all of whom have been influenced by the house and its remarkable collection. This anthology is essential for anyone who has visited Kettle’s Yard or admires its artists, such as Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Alfred Wallis.
The book is filled with pleasure
