"Andrew Stephenson contributes a gem of an essay, discussing the impact of social changes in the interwar period, the move of the prosperous middle classes into flats rather than houses, the rising demands of the newly independent single woman, and the way in which the art trade reacted to these demands."
"This is an important book, distinguished both by its detailed scholarship and by the breadth of its contextual understanding."
"Fletcher and Helmreich have opened many doors here, and one may hope that the art trade will join the currently favourite subject of Empire as a theme for fruitful academic research."
