Art News

Seen any good art lately?

I am really looking forward to this: https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesig ... ate-modern

That image (Eine Kleine Nachtmusik) is one of my favourite ever paintings; it stopped me in my tracks the first time I saw it. Tanning was an amazing artist, challenging and well ahead of her time.

I hope to make it down to Buck House later in the summer to see the Royal Collection's exhibition of more than 200 Da Vinci sketches, it should be a corker.

Two months after feeling excited about the Dorothea Tanning exhibition, and having forgotten all about it in between due to being distracted by life events, I am actually going to see it next week, before it closes.

Anyone like to hazard a guess as to who this is?

I heard about it on the radio news earlier.

It was also likened to Wendolene from Wallis & Gromit

I suppose it is an approximation of what she looked like, but I don't much like it.

Is that the David Beckham who visits me in my nightmares?
