In 1951 Gordon Baldwin arrived at the Central School of Art. The School was situated in Southampton Row, at the heart of London's Bloomsbury district, not far from the British Museum. Baldwin was not yet twenty, and had previously studied at the Lincoln School of art. For many people of his generation, conscious of the possibilities of opening up in post-war Britain, London was the place to be, and for a hopeful, talented and ambitious young artist there were few better places to study than the Central School.
