It deepens like a coastal shelf
I’d never heard of him before . Thank you for sending me off to widen my knowledge! An interesting series of portraits for him from boyhood to old age.
Nell - I think he's well known in Sussex because his work can be seen at Charleston, Berwick Church and Monk House. He certainly had a fruity life!
Seeing the photos of Richard Grant aging made me think of the Picture of Dorian Grey. Scary how time takes it toll on all of us! xoxo
I love Duncan Grant, reminds me to read Deceived With Kindness, which has glowered at me from my shelf for agesPS: Harper's Bazaar editor Justine Picardie is in conversation with Grayson Perry at the Charleston Literary Festival in May.
Carol - Too true. When I recently recognised a woman I hadn't seen for 27 years, she seemed incredibly grateful.Helen - Thanks for the tip. I expect it will sell out quickly, so I'll book a ticket as soon as I can.
Brilliant, thank you.
Thanks for the link.I particularly appreciated a painting of his garden during WW2 years, when the country was busy digging up spare countyside for civic utilitarian projects...I can definitely understand why someone could cultivate a reclusive vision when confronted by our modern functionality/utilitarianism.
hi, the second picture is of David Garnett
Ah, thank you Anonymous. I'll have to find another photo, or change it to "The Eight Ages..."
