Art of Jan and Cora Gordon

My interest in the art and lives of Jan and Cora Gordon stems from the family connection
(my father was Jan's godson and the Gordons were friends with my grandparents during and after the First World War);
from growing up in a house full of Gordons art and listening to stories about them (often involving guitars);
and from simply enjoying the books (especially when, as in Spain, England, France and the USA, I know the places they write about).

The information used in these pages comes from the books themselves, accounts by their contemporaries in Paris, and from the unpublished writings of Ashley Smith, W.D.A. Smith and Jan Gordon (some of this shared with Ken Bryant by my father and then kindly shared back to me by Ken).

Please enjoy a wander through these galleries and follow some of the links (many leading to articles on http://janandcoragordonart.blogspot.com , a series of more than 60 essays on the Gordons based on original research from primary resources and materials belonging to the family).
