Anthony Blunt, styled Sir Anthony Blunt KCVO from 1956 to November 1979, a leading British art historian who confessed in 1964, after being offered immunity from prosecution, to having been a spy for the Soviet Union (September 26, 1907 - March 26, 1983) was born Anthony Frederick Blunt in Bournemouth, Hampshire, South East England. Blunt was considered to be the "fourth man" of the Cambride Five, also know as The Cambridge Spy Ring, a ring of spies in the United Kingdom that passed information to the Soviet Union during World War II and was active from the 1930s until at least into the early 1950s, which included Kim Philby, Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess, Anthony Blunt and, possibly, John Cairncross. The term "Cambridge" refers to the recruitment of the group during their education at the University of Cambridge in the 1930s. Debate surrounds the exact timing of their recruitment by Soviet intelligence. Blunt claimed that they were not recruited as agents until after they had graduated. None of the known members was ever prosecuted for spying. Anthony Blunt was the fourth discovered, with John Cairncross yet to be revealed. The height of his espionage activity was during World War II, when he passed intelligence on Wehrmacht plans that the British government had decided to withhold from its ally. His confession, a closely guarded secret for years, was revealed publicly by Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in November 1979. He was stripped of his knighthood immediately thereafter. Blunt was professor of art history at the University of London, director of the Courtauld Institute of Art, and Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures. His 1967 monograph on the French Baroque painter Nicolas Poussin is still widely regarded as a watershed book in art history. His teaching text and reference work Art and Architecture in France 1500-1700, first published in 1953, reached its fifth edition in a slightly revised version by Richard Beresford in 1999, when it was still considered the best account of the subject.
