I have just discovered, courtesy of Bing search and never found on Google, two portraits of Rosemary Sutcliff which I had not seen for many a year. They are at The National Portrait Gallery. I have applied for full size reproduction rights. Meanwhile two thumbnails must suffice. The one below is by Lord Snowden, for the Sunday Times who I think had compiled a list of top twenty authors of the 20th Century
The others in the photo are:
- Dame Beryl Bainbridge (1932-2010), Novelist and actress.
- Sir John Betjeman (1906-1984), Poet Laureate, writer and broadcaster.
- Sir Malcolm Stanley Bradbury (1932-2000), Novelist and critic.
- Anthony Burgess (John Burgess Wilson) (1917-1993), Novelist and critic; composer.
- Leon Garfield (1921-1996), Writer.
- Laurence Edward Alan (‘Laurie’) Lee (1914-1997), Poet and prose writer.
- Rosamond Nina Lehmann (1901-1990), Novelist.
- Sir Victor Sawdon (‘V.S.’) Pritchett (1900-1997), Writer and critic.
- Sir Laurens Jans van der Post (1906-1996), Writer, farmer, explorer and conservationist.
