I’m relaxing a little this evening, although having just watched the news it’s difficult to wind down completely. Before the news we watched a programme about Picasso, which was interesting if a little too much of an overview. It’s part of a series that tries to look at how important artists have had an influence on the design of fashion and architecture, etc.
Last week they looked at Matisse and the thing that struck me most and which was echoed again this week a little was how much the programme took the artist in isolation and not part of a generally changing art world.
Now I find myself getting a little tired so I’ll just read for a little while and let tales of werewolves prepare me for my bed.
