Papers of Nan Youngman

Nan Youngman (1906-1995) was an artist and educationalist. She studied at the Slade in the 1920s and subsequently took over Mark Gertler's studio. In the 1930s she became an important member of the Artists' International Association, a group of socially conscious painters, sculptors and designers who aimed to resist the rise of European fascism. She was also interested in art education and by the 1950s was Art Advisor to the Cambridgeshire Education Committee, also becoming a lecturer for the British Council and organiser of the Pictures for Schools exhibitions.

The collection contains books, lecture notes and press cuttings on art education, with some exhibition catalogues.
