Kerry Downes (2)

In looking up information about Kerry Downes, I was intrigued to find a photograph he had taken of Anthony Blunt, who was Director of the Courtauld Institute when Downes was both an undergraduate and postgraduate (it was Blunt who inspired his interest in Borromini). I assume it was taken on one of the Courtauld’s Summer Schools and shows a) the languid side of Blunt’s nature and b) that Downes was a good photographer:-

    Kerry got Blunt to talk to us Reading undergrads at least twice in the early ’70s… The Catholic and the Communist seem to have remained friends…
