I love to go to galleries, visiting exhibitions and to be nourished by the arts. Now that I am just working round the corner from summerset house, I tend to drop in to Courtauld institute regularly. The collection quite simply one of the finest of its kind any where in the world, with some very prized pieces on display. Looking at this fine collection makes me wonder who is amongst us in our time that has such similar deep insight and vision of the arts. To be able to collect with unmatched sensitivity and conviction. What we need is less of a fair ground theme shows with loaded pretensions and more of something with substance and real.
BP Portrait show at National Portrait gallery was a huge disappointment, there were few works that stood out but overall the slant was on tired overworked pieces without spirit or flair.
