Exhibition – Joshua Compston Archive Project – January/April 2011

In January, to mark the twentieth year of The Courtauld Institute’s East Wing exhibition series, I gathered together a large selection of archive material concerning the first East Wing show and the later independent activities of its curator, the late Joshua Compston. I am sincerely grateful to the Compston family for their support and kind gift of material to the East Wing archive. My thanks are also due to Sam Crabtree, David Taborn and Darren Coffield, who all made the exhibition a success with their individual support.

It is hoped that this body of material will continue to expand over the coming years as the efforts of Joshua Compston become further recognised and celebrated.
