Notes

First editions, first impressions. Munnings focused on animals and warfare in his artwork, and his achievements led to his appointment as President of the Royal Academy in 1944. He was a champion of fine craftsmanship, and a vociferous critic of modern art, both views that are clearly present in his autobiography.
