Peter Watson in the FT

Nice to see Watson on page 13 of today’s Financial Times! Not a paper which often refers to him. He pops up in a review of the new Keith Vaughan show at the wonderful Pallant House. Richard Cork’s review rather oddly labels him a “publisher”, presumably because he paid for the publication of Horizon. He is sometimes confused with a firm which published Tambimuttu, but he had nothing to do with that so far as I can tell. A more usual epithet for him is Maecenas-like, which seems a little more appropriate.

The full text of Vaughan’s Journal in the Tate Archive contains some interesting snippets on his relationship with Watson. These will be covered in the book.
