The Young Artist in Britain

Crowcroft, Peter
November 1954
New Republic;11/8/54, Vol. 131 Issue 19, p18
This article focuses on artists living in Great Britain. Today, an artist has to be more of a businessman than ever in the past. The high cost of living means it is just impossible to "get by." There are as many solutions as there are personalities and varying circumstances. Writers, and most other artists are manual workers. They have a physical aggressiveness. They rage at their work, at the public, at their lack of recognition. The fact has to be digested that there is small connection between total personality and artistic abilities. Of course, these traits are important in the professional contacts.
