Darling Patrick, my article about Patrick Procktor, is published in the first issue of Luncheon, a beautiful new magazine co-edited by Frances von Hofmannstahl and Thomas Persson. I have posted two short extracts from the article online here. The full text can be found in the magazine, which also carries illustrations of Procktor’s work, along with documentary photographs of the artist by David Montgomery and Homer Sykes.

The photograph here shows a detail from the opening double-page spread of my article, along with a section of the cover of Luncheon magazine. The cover photograph is by Sølve Sundsbø.

• I have recently been invited to write about the work of Peter Joyce for a catalogue that will accompany an exhibition of paintings by the artist opening in London next year. Updates will follow.
