Letter to ARC

Published March 13, 2012

"... what pleasure it gave me, as a 71-year-old Englishman, to read some of your items about David Hockney. I said his work wasn't much good;...anybody who knows which end of a paintbrush is which is accepted as a master in Britain.

I grew up at the height of modernism, and when you're told by experts that Picasso is the greatest artist of the century, you end up believing it. Eventually, I discovered the treasure-house of our Victorian legacy.

I saw the Queen shaking hands with Emin on television, and...wept. ...the ultimate degradation of my poor country.

I've seen better art than Emin's on the walls of public lavatories,…"

Derek Greatrex
