Footnotes

  • "This proved particularly popular with the critics and collectors. Within ten days of opening their 1933 colour prints show, the Redfern Gallery urgently requested Tschudi to send more impressions of Ice Hockey, adding 'It has been bought by the Contemporary Art Society for the British Museum and goes today on approval to the Victoria and Albert Museum, South Kensington."
