Why art fairs are terrific and not at all boring
It sounds obvious, but many people hang art too high – eye level is considered the correct height. In rooms where people are sitting it can be even lower. If the walls allow, two rows of pictures can work well. People make the mistake of putting the...
Art & Life: The Paintings of Beryl Bainbridge
In the window of Beryl Bainbridge’s house there sat a life-sized male mannequin she baptised Neville Chamberlain. He was there to see off burglars. He was also there because she just liked him. Like the stuffed fox on the sofa or the life-sized dead...

How about a bit of nostalgia and a touch of disappointment to start off the New Year? Not one but two of my favourite theatrical moments spring from 1996 and the premier of Yasmina Reza’s sophisticated, witty Art. The first is when Ken Stott, playing...
My friend the spy & why we’re all pretty silly about about art
