Nicholas Elkin 1945 -2019
'The family of Nicholas Elkin, Trustee of the Estate of David Jones, are sad to report his death from Alzheimer’s Disease on 20 August 2019.
Nicholas always took a keen interest in Jones’s work, both literary and artistic, with a particular emphasis on the First World War drawings. He had a selection at home and would be pleased to show anyone who showed interest, from academics to passing trades people.
Joining Anthony Hyne as a Trustee in the 1990s, Nicholas took quickly to the responsibilities of managing the Estate, diligently fielding permissions enquiries, museum loans and reproduction rights until his recent illness made it impossible.
He was instrumental in developing and seeing through to completion a comprehensive conservation programme of those works held by the Estate, ensuring their survival and preservation for the benefit of future generations of scholars.
His gentle, guiding hand on the management of the Estate will be sorely missed.'
from Lucas Elkin, Trustee of the Estate of David Jones
