Tonks (Henry)

Tonks (Henry)

Three autograph letters signed ('Henry Tonks'), one declining a request to write an article " for two reasons, one that already my time which I want to employ in pursuit of panting, is too much taken up, and secondly that I have not very definite views on the naked question. It is odd but in the days of my youth people were les careful about displaying their bodies than they are today"; in another one Tonks writes "I can not speak with any authority on the question of making nakedness more generally practiced" and adds "when about seven, I remember seeing at Hastings a large collection of girls with nothing on bathing from some racks where anyone could see them...I saw there a man of about fifty bathing naked and near him a woman also naked washing her baby, the man took no notice of them", four pages, mid-horizontal folding mark, 8vo, Vale Studio B, The Vale, Chelsea, 16 October - 2 November 1934; with a short handwritten note on 'Burlington Fine Arts Club' headed card.
