Extraordinary interest is being taken in London in the foundation and fortunes of "Unit. One", the new group of artists made up by a select number including Mr. Paul Nash, Mr. Ben Nicholson, Mr. Edward Wadsworth, Miss Frances Hodgkin, among the painters, with sculpture represented by Mr. Henry Moore and Miss Barbara Hepworth, ans architecture by Mr. Wells Coates and another. In the group are thus joined all the arts of material construction at the high level of their contemporary expression in England.
I feel that Yorkshire should have pride in "Unit One". Mr. Moore, Miss Hepworth, and Mr Wadsworth all come from Yorkshire and have found stimulus in Northern industrial life. Professor Herbert Read, another Yorkshireman, and the greatest critical authority we have in England on contemporary art, its certain to do the group good interpretive service.
Coincidentally its headquarters, the Mayor gallery in Cork Street, are controlled by a Yorkshireman. Mr. Mayors father was Frederick Mayor, the Yorkshire artist. His gallery shows its inclination by its fine present show of paintings by Max Ernst, who is painter first and "surrealist" second. Its rooms are architecturally of our day and will show off well the exhibitions of "Unit One".
