collection owner: Kenneth Clark, ‘Papers of Kenneth Clark’ [c.1876–1984]

This collection consists of the papers of Kenneth Clark, from which one file of correspondence relating to interned refugees has been digitised. This file has been highlighted as it sheds light on Kurt Schwitters' time at the Hutchinson Internment Camp and his role in appealing for release from the camp, alongside other artists, with the aid of Kenneth Clark.

Items also digitised include letters and postcards from Henry Moore to Kenneth Clark dating from the 1930s to 1970s.

Further information on this collection is available on the archive catalogue.
