Kenneth Clark

I have just been to the launch of James Stourton’s biography of Kenneth Clark.   I was told by someone who had read the published version (I only read an early draft) that his great achievement was to convert a view of Clark from being arrogant to being shy;  but the answer surely is that he was both – a classic Wykehamist, knowedgeable, intelligent, bookish and oddly diffident.
