Helen Kapp (1901-1978) was an artist who studied at Slade School of Art, and the Central School of Arts and Craft in Paris, where she met Modigliani. At one stage, she was director of the Wakefield City Art Gallery, Yorkshire, and first director of Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal, Westmorland. Kapp’s work, Toying with a Fancy, began ‘out of a cloud of Drambuie on a crisp snowy Yorkshire night’. The result gave her license for satire. The images carry a playful viciousness, something akin to those by German artist, George Grosz. This book is a presentation copy to Charles Brasch, who at one stage tried to organise an artistic residency for Kapp in New Zealand.
