Kenneth Clark:
Looking for Civilisation

Tate Publishing

290 × 240mm 192pp

This is the book that accompanied the exhibition at Tate Britain in 2014. It celebrates the quite extraordinary achievements of the historian and TV presenter Kenneth Clark not only as a collector and communicator but as a cultural polymath too. Although, to some, he appears perhaps rather ‘old school’ these days when it comes to finding his equivalent to present a new series of ‘Civilisation’ being planned, those unfortunates with the task are finding he’s a rather tough act to follow.
