Artists’ Lives resource

Have you ever come across the Artists’ Lives resource from the British Library? It is a fantastic collection of aural interviews with artists where you can hear them talk about their lives, work, friendships and more.

It is a platform for British artists to create a record of their lives in their own words. The first recording was made in 1990, and is still ongoing.

If you have visited and enjoyed the Eileen Agar exhibition at Whitechapel Gallery recently, then how about listening to her talk about her life, as she was one of the first to be recorded in the 1990′s shortly before she died ? Click on this link  and you can find artists included in the A-Z by surname.

Find some more resources on Eileen Agar on the Tate website here.
