talks to David Sylvester
A retrospective exhibition of paintings by Sir William Coldstream opens later this week at the South London Art Gallery and will subsequently be shown in Leeds, Bristol, Swansea, Southampton, and Birmingham. It is in fact the first one-man exhibition Coldstream has had. This may explain why, despite the considerable following he has among artists, his wider reputation is less as a painter than as a public figure, Slade Professor of Fine Art in the University of London, Vice-Chairman of the Arts Council of Great Britain, Trustee of the National Gallery.
This is one of a number of interviews with British artists to be broadcast on the Third Programme this year.
