The nearest thing that 20th C. British art had to William Blake, David Jones’ achievements have always appealed to a dedicated army of distinguished scholars without ever quite attracting a wider public, with his last major show (in Wales) now 20 years ago. Now, perhaps, is the moment! Nicholas Usherwood BOOK review
