LONDON – Two days before the sale of works from the collection of modernist architect Eugene Rosenberg on 18 November, leading art critic, writer and curator Richard Cork will speak about the work of the pioneering architect and his wife, Penelope.

In 1992, Cork was chosen by Rosenberg to contribute an essay to his book Architect's Choice, Art in Architecture in Britain since 1945 – an overview of the best collaborations between architect and artist – for which Rosenberg had been amassing photos and ideas for many years.

For many years the art critic for the Evening Standard then Chief Art critic for The Times, Cork has published extensively and curated many exhibitions including Wild Thing: Epstein, Gaudier-Brzeska, Gill at the Royal Academy in 2009. 

Frances Christie is head of the Modern and Postwar British Art department.
