Dick French: On The Town – May 2017

St John the Baptist is said to be leaping for joy in his mother’s womb during her encounter with the Virgin Mary. A difficult subject to depict. One can almost hear Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling drawling “Well I //--> think the word difficult is awfully well chosen”.

There are some wonderful drawings and letters in this show. Michelangelo often worked on both sides of the paper which was expensive in those google_ad_client = "ca-pub-3967079123942817"; days. I think he

was google_ad_client = "ca-pub-3967079123942817"; probably a bit of a skinflint. It’s interesting that Michelangelo src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> drew mostly with the hand when nowadays we are encouraged to draw
mostly with the arm.

Many of these paintings have dramatic bits

of landscape in the background in the red-tinged sky. google_ad_slot = "8637400688"; I couldn’t take to The Lamentation. I think it’s the expression on the Virgin’s face. Those upturned eyes and the horizontal body seem insufficiently scourged


with its immaculate underpants. Still I suppose this is no place for realism.

“People //--> don’t buy pictures because they admire them, they buy them

because others covet them.” Advice given to Constable, but I can’t remember by whom. An Andy Warhol painting of Chairman Mao has just sold in Hong Kong for $1l million. How long can this crap persist? Warhol was once described as “an ambulant black hole”. And now we’ve got another src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> one in Mr Wu.

To the Mall to see the google_ad_slot = "7160667483"; painter/stainers exhibition. At the opening I met no less than the Chief Stain himself. He seemed a nice chap. Sporting his enormous bling on a chain round his neck he looked a bit like a


sommelier. For once the 1st prize was worth looking at. A large, elaborate, patched-together drawing google_ad_height = 90; by Chris Green. Bernadette /* xin-1 */ Tinko showed a small picture of a filthy brown
sink, which I rather liked, while opposite Alex Rooney showed a similarly sized clean white sink. I wonder if they know each other. Cherry Pickles shows google_ad_slot = "6023194682"; another rear view mirror piece, A487, and Peter Archer’s Cliff Edge is sensitive.


Scrapyard Queen shows another of her car wrecks; as always very well done but I’m src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> always hoping she’ll ring a few changes – naked men draped over the bonnet

Even though these things are body casts he’s managed to get them out of proportion. google_ad_height = 90; The separate upper and lower parts don’t fit

fanny – same distance. Variations do occur


of course but with the rather perfect specimen he has grabbed from behind this rule would hold. If her bum was a drug it would be Class A. Her tits too, petite.

“I think that great art is time travel. Emotional time travel.” What on earth can he mean by this? “Quinn’s works invite us to reflect on the nature and meaning of time”. I should be used to such gnomic utterances by now but I can still be surprised and puzzled.
