Roy Strong

One of the best things about last night was seeing Roy Strong semi-presiding at dinner as the longest standing representative of British art scholarship, stretching back to The English Icon: Elizabethan and Jacobean Portraiture which the Paul Mellon Foundation for British Art, as it was then called, published in a lavish piece of book production in 1969; and, very impressively, about to publish a new investigation of Elizabethan art, The Elizabethan Image, going back to issues of late Tudor visual aesthetics which he first studied under Gombrich and Frances Yates sixty years ago.
