Abstract:
Victor Waddington, who wrote the above, was Jack Yeats' dealer for many years. He was therefore well placed to understand Yeats' relationship with the buying public, and his "considered opinion" has to be taken seriously. Being "full of deception" does not mean that he was positively deceiving people (Waddingtom made that clear), but it certainly implies the more negative quality of deceptiveness, just as distances are deceptive in a mist. The trouble is that Yeats' literary works have thoroughly deceived his commentators and the question arises as to whether the mist is of his own creating, or simply the result of our not having wiped our spectacles.
