While rummaging around for a print of Bridget Riley
My latest best find: Glasgow School of Art’s Archives and Library flickr feed. Including this very handsome poster of the great Bridget Riley (right). But also posters for David Hockney; Patrick Heron and George Melly (as the King of Spades). I found this while rummaging around for a print of Riley’s Late Morning (1968/7) currently on show at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery which I stared at for some considerable time at the weekend. I can’t find the print online, which is probably a good thing. A lot of nonsense is talked about art, so I will be careful and I’ll keep it short, but there is little else on canvas that can quite move me quite like the straight, simply painted, lines of a Bridget Riley painting.
