Provenance: The Artist's Studio
Gavin Bone (1903-1942) was a poet, artist and Fellow of St John’s College, Oxford who specialised in Medieval English Language and Literature. Whilst there is a general recognition of his talents unfortunately he has been little studied and largely forgotten due to a number of factors, not least the sombre conditions of the posthumous publications of his works. He will be the subject of a future publication by Charles Tolkien-Gillett.
