The source text is from:

Norman Rosenthal, 'Auerbach and his history'. In Catherine Lampert, Norman Rosenthal & Isabel Carlisle (eds.) (2001) Frank Auerbach: Paintings and drawings 1954-2001. London: Royal Academy of Arts. 10-17.

The way this was chosen was that I decided in advance was that a 'fair' test would be to choose the first paragraph of the first book that came to hand; through the method of choosing it, that text might have some claim to being average, and thereby give us some idea of how we face up to the challenge of translating an 'average' text. Also, the decision to use the first paragraph meant that the text would not be based on prior context that the translators would not have access to.
