On an April afternoon in the year 1937 a man, to be exact, an elderly person, and a boy in a long blue coat got off a bus at the north end of Vauxhall Bridge1 and went towards the Tate Gallery.2 The man was Bertram Desmon de, Stephen’s father; the boy, whose name was also Stephen, was the artist’s son.
Inside few people were about, and making their way through the central gallery, past the works of the famous English painters, they turned to the left and finally sat down in a room on the west side. Upon the wall directly opposite were three paintings. At these the boy and the old man looked in silence. After some time, without taking his eyes off the painting, Bertram spoke.
“We expect fine things of you, my boy. How are the lessons coming along?"
“Not badly, I think, sir. We had a test before we broke ’ up for the holidays.”
