Anyone who knows me will know how obsessed I am with public art. So I was delighted when Waitrose Weekend agreed to publish a lengthy piece on the Twentieth Century Society’s Campaign to record and save Britain’s murals. And even more delighted to learn that the John Lewis Partnership itself included murals among it’s many pieces of commissioned artwork.
To coincide with their new Eduardo Paolozzi exhibition, Chichester’s Pallant House Gallery is holding a series of Thursday talks around the themes and ideas of this captivating artist, especially his collage work and approach to his art. I love receiving the gallery’s newsletter, not least because they always seem to choose the most beautiful images to illustrate it. There’s something really enticing about these colours, isn’t there?
