Dinora Mendelson on the formation of the Borough Group / by Theresa Kneppers

When I married Leslie [Marr] in 1948, Holden, his then partner, Dorothy Mead and a few others formed a group against us, compounded later that year when Leslie took the family to Cyprus on a painting expedition. We all painted well and David’s works were superb. But the trip further incensed Holden and Mead and their reactions fatally damaged the Borough Group.

There was and could only be one President of the Borough Group, David Bomberg. Holden’s claims to be President are untrue.
