GUARDIAN: Pevsner – The Early Life: Germany and Art by Stephen Games

BOOK REVIEW: "Despite its best intentions, the Third Reich did wonders for British culture. Among the refugees who settled in London were Walter Neurath, who founded Thames & Hudson, art historian Ernst Gombrich, and Nikolaus Pevsner. Of these, it was Pevsner who became best-known to the general public. He was the one who gave popular radio talks, including the Reith Lectures in 1955, and he alone became a proper noun: despite being much revised, his guides to the buildings of England are still, to most people, Pevsners."
