Following is a book review by Alistair Sooke published in The Telegraph, London, September 11, 2011.  The book titled Edward Burra: 20th Century Eye is written by Jane Stevenson:  

Edward Burra could be a difficult man. In 1961, when the Royal Academy rang to ask if he would consider becoming an associate, he shouted downstairs to his manservant, who had picked up the telephone: "Tell them to f*** off, I'm busy."

He painted compulsively but seldom attend (showing 500 of 8214 characters).
