Following on from the seminal report Help for the Arts, a review of the needs of the arts in Britain published in 1959, the Gulbenkian Foundation set up a new enquiry into the structure of arts funding in Britain in 1974. Chaired by Lord Radcliffe-Maud, Master of University College, Oxford, its remit was to study the future pattern of national, regional and local patronage of the arts in England and Wales, including the work of regional arts associations and the role of local authorities, and to make recommendations.
Support for the Arts in England and Wales publishes the findings of the enquiry, setting out general and particular conclusions and recommendations, the complex and confusing structure of arts support in Britain, and the likely consequences for various arts and artists that follow present practices of art support.
