Dick French: On The Town – September 2016

There’s a room in my

flat that I rather grandly refer to as ‘The Library’. About 20 years ago I had it fitted out with shelves up to the ceiling with nicely boxed-in corners. It’s painted deep red. For a few years it looked splendid, then it gradually started filling up with junk.
Now it’s waist-deep in motorcycle google_ad_slot = "8637400688"; parts, leather trousers, helmets, exhaust pipes and tins of google_ad_client = "ca-pub-3967079123942817"; oil. I’ve been trying to excavate it recently as my son has gone off to work in New York, and now the whole flat resembles a junk yard. The book I’m trying to find is the collected writings of Sir Thomas Lawrence. So far I’ve had no luck. I remember it was dark green with faded gold lettering and quite thick. The reason I’m keen to find it
is the exhibition Painters’ Paintings at the National google_ad_slot = "6023194682"; Gallery. The great treat of this show is a preparatory drawing /* xin2 */ by Carracci for The Loves of google_ad_width = 970; the Gods, A Woman Being Carried Off by a
Sea Monster, which used to belong to Lawrence. It’s
such a fantastic piece that I’m sure he must have written about it at some length. What condition was it in before he
bought it? Was it rolled up or crumpled? Where did he get
it from? How much did he pay for it?

When I find the book I’m going to be like Lieutenant Columbo when he started

to whistle ‘This old man…’, but until then I’ll just consider the exhibition, which is interesting but puzzling.

How could such a great draughtsman as Degas have lived with Cézanne’s cack-handed

I nearly forgot. After the Painters’ Paintings show I popped upstairs to see google_ad_height = 90; the Humbrol bloke from Coventry and his woodscapes. To paraphrase Richard Dawkins: “This exhibition fills a
much-needed gap.”

After another search of the library I’ve accepted that


Sir Thomas Lawrence is no longer there. It’s funny how books go

anybody but in the
process of looking I’ve discovered a few old favourites: The Biggles Omnibus and a fat book of Maigret stories (illustration: Jean Gabin as the sleuth).

I like to have things unfinished and go back to them later, sometimes years later, and then I know exactly what to do with them. It’s a good way of avoiding the demon of preciosity which can creep up on you and has a paralysing effect.
