Book Description
The Cambian. An Occasional Review of the Camberwell School of Arts & Crafts. Number Two. 24pp., illustrations. A very good copy in original decorative wrappers. No copies of the Cambian are recorded on FirstSearch. 8vo. February 1911. ~ When the School first opened in 1898 in the Peckham Road, Camberwell under the aegis of the London County Council, it offered day and evening instruction across a wide range of subjects from Architecture, Furniture Design, Life Drawing and Stained Glass Work to Dressmaking, Pottery and Typography. William Johnstone (1897-1981) was appointed principal in 1938. He soon established the reputation of the School as a fundamental influence on art development throughout the country when, after the end of World War II, he brought together many of the notable artists formerly associated with the Euston Road School. These included William Coldstream, Lawrence Gowning, Victor Pasmore, Claude Rogers and William Townsend. The ethos of these artists was to last for a considerable time but sadly like many other art establishments the School saw its own decline into an adjunct of a polytechnic when by 1992 it had lost its irreplaceable Fine Art course which had established its reputation.
