9780060107741 This is the First U.S. Edition (hardcover) of "The Other Half " by Kenneth Clark, which is the second volume of his autobiography and the sequel to "Another Part of the Wood." In this volume Clark takes us from the hazardous evacuation of the National Gallery pictures to the safety of a slate quarry in Wales at the beginning of World War II through to the calm reflection at his lifetime of accomplishment. Lord Clark evokes the spirit of wartime London and recounts his activities as an amateur civil servant, professor of art history, writer/lecturer in US and Europe, Chairman of the Arts Council of Great Britain and, finally, as a television performer - his greatest achievement, "Civilisation" stands as an original and enduring landmark.
