Stephen Bann was Professor of the History of Art at Bristol University from 2000 to 2008, and is currently a Senior Research Fellow. He first met Ian Hamilton Finlay in 1964, and over twenty years became (in the words of Finlay's son Alec) his 'preferred commentator'. His short film of 1973 is the first record in colour of the garden of Stonypath (later to be named 'Little Sparta'). In 2011, he published an illustrated essay on Finlay's first garden poems, installed in 1965 beside a farmhouse in Northern Scotland. He served as a trustee of Little Sparta between 1994 and 2013.
