I’m yet to see any evidence of a massive atrocity in Bucha.
Followed hard on the heels of the Ukrainian/Nazi torture videos – I presume that was the thinking behind the production.

I have to say, Dover, your choice of art is almost always delightful but you’ve outdone yourself today…

…do you want to tell us who the artist is?

He seems to be reading to someone out of the picture, to his left.

Yeah Dover – for what it’s is worth I love the painting you post.
It shows the beauty of life on earth – whether it’s a landscape or portrait.

Dover, thank you very much for introducing me to Harold Knight who, I confess, had absolutely passed me by. An interesting and attractive body of work – arguably you’ve picked out the standout piece, but he was a portraitist of some serious talent.

I think my other favourite, amongst those I have found, is the two women on a cliff top – very 1920s/30s railway advertising posters in style.

I once had a framed set of posters produced for the relaunch of the Orient express – 4 stations, sleeping & dining car – in a reminiscent style (sadly they went “missing” during one of our international house moves). My wife (to be, at that time) bought them for my birthday soon after we met…

  1. Emirates flights worldwide seriously disrupted due to flooding in Dubai. An airline hub is a great idea until it isn’t.
