Lot Essay

Mervyn Levy (Ruskin Spear, London, 1985, pp. 36-37) comments that 'Ruskin Spear's most typical expressions of his warmth of feeling, his powers of observation and his deep, if detached, understanding of humanity and the environment in which he has lived and worked all his life, are to be found in his studies of the ordinary people of West London going about their business, or captured in unguarded moments of relaxation. The streets, pubs and snooker halls of Hammersmith, Chiswick, Shepherd's Bush, Fulham and Putney are the areas he knows and loves'.
