    This major exhibition highlights Randolph Schwabe’s (1885-1948) distinguished contribution to the practice and spirit of twentieth century British art through his skill as a painter, draughtsman and illustrator as well as his career as art educator, having succeeded Henry Tonks as Professor and Principal of the Slade School of Fine Art in 1930. It draws on his richly detailed diaries which he commenced immediately prior to his Slade appointment and continued until his untimely death in post in 1948 to offer insights into the artistic and literary circles of which he was a part.
