THE THIRTY-ONE YEAR OLD DIRECTOR OF THE NATIONAL GALLERY AT HOME.
(Right) MR. KENNETH McKENZIE CLARK, Director of the National Gallery since January 1934, is an outstanding personality in the world of art. He was born on July 13, 1903, and is, therefore, notably young to hold so important a position. He was formerly the Keeper of the Department of Fine Art in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Mr. Clark's learning does not, however, render him purely academic in his interests, as this study of him in a domestic mood shows. He is here posed in the nursery of his house in Portland Place, with MRS. CLARK and their twin son and daughter, COLIN and COLETTE. Mrs. Clark was Miss Elizabeth Martin.
