Hardback book to accompany The Watson Gordon Lecture Series 2006; Roger Fry's Journey: From the Primitives to the Post-Impressionists. This lecture, the first in the Watson Gordon Lecture series, was given by Caroline Elam, an eminent scholar of the Italian Renaissance and former editor of the Burlington Magazine. Her illuminating lecture links Roger Fry's analysis of the paintings of Seurat with his deep understanding of Italian Renaissance art and explores the connections between his taste for the Post-Impressionists and his love of the early Italians.
