Post lot text
The caption explains that Lessore directed the gallery 'until its closure early in 1965. Renowned and irreplaceable for her total lack of compromise, she launched, among many others, Frank Auerbach, David Kossoff, Jack Smith, Derrick Greaves, Edward Middledith, Michael Andrews and Sheila Fell. Her gallery kept, in the very centre of London, an informal and bed-sitterish atmosphere.'
