Turner






Click on images to enlarge

Yesterday I went to the Tate Britain to see the Millais exhibition..Well, yeah, not bad. Some paintings are truly great and some...Well...
But before I left I passed through the Turner Galleries....My God! There is a show of rare Turner's watercolours selected by David Hockney. FABULOUS!!!..One of the most magnificent and stimulating exhibitions I've seen in my life. Unmissable. If you live in London YOU HAVE TO VISIT IT! It puts Turner very close to Rembrandt as one of the most extraordinary artists of all time sketching evocative landscapes.

Ayer fui a la Tate y vi una muestra de acuarelas de Turner elegidas por David Hockney. Una de las mas extraordinarias colecciones de obras maestras que vi en mi vida.

Mr. Grillo,
Are you the same Oscar Grillo who has an illustration published in Alan Passes,The Private Diary of Rembrandt Harmenszoon Van Rijn Painter, 1661? If so, I am in desperate need of contacting you regarding rights and reproduction of this illustration on page 134. I will wait for your confirmation.

Yes, I am. Put an e-mail address and I'll contact you directly. I'll erase it as soon as I receive it to avoid you getting junk mail, etc.

Turner transcends and illuminates. Your zeal is infectious. When I go to a Museum and see something stunning I laugh.

Pure joy. I wiush I could bottle it. Will be back.
