This is the third book in a series of novels about the life and times of Francis Cornish, following 'The Rebel Angels' and 'What's Bred in the Bone."
"There is an important decision to be made. The Cornish Foundation, set up with money left by the late Francis Cornish, art expert, collector, connoisseur, and notable eccentric, must choose a worth undertaking upon which to expend a portion of its considerable funds. As the Foundation's chairman, Francis's nephew Arthur Cornish (ably assisted by his loving, beguiling wife, Maria Theotoky), believes -- and prizing an image as a clashing, daring, imaginative patron of the arts has no small influence on his reasoning -- they should select a project worthy of the risk taker whose name the Foundation bears. . ."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
