    The Life of John Sell Cotman, by Mr. Sydney Kitson, is announced by Faber and Faber for publication on April 1. It tells of the chequered career of a man of genius, born in a provincial English town, who became a great artist. Mr. Kitson has had access to a large number of letters written by Cotman at various stages, and has used them to complete a story never before fully told. The volume is illustrated by about 160 reproductions.
