Julian Trevelyan was the first artist to be recruited by Mass Observation, a pioneering anthropological study started in 1937 to record the everyday lives of ordinary people, which gave a unique insight into life in Britain spanning four decades “…it was largely through my experiences in it that I had the courage to ‘find myself’ in painting…” Art historian David Mellor uncovers its history and the story of those involved.
