Manuscript annotations on his entry in Who's Who in Art (1958)
London: 1957. 1 page 8 x 10 inches. Manuscript annotations on his entry for the 9th edition of Who's Who in Art (1958), most likely to mislead the publisher, claiming he was born in 1924 and not 1926 and that he had abandoned art to grow "soft fruit", that he studied art in Moscow and not in London and that he signs his work "Bugger." Provenance: From a collection of letters and papers amassed by illustrator and painter Geoffrey Robinson during his years as a publisher with Rockliff, John Baker, Maclaren, et al. from TFP: "John Peter Berger is an English painter, art critic, essayist, prose writer and a fiction writer. His fictional work on the alienation of the English urban life, sociological writings on the migrant workers who left behind isolated rural communities after they turned to the contemporary economic lifestyle and fictional work on European farmers who are now displaced economically and politically has made him into an intellectually stimulating writer as well as a politically controversial one."
