• I have today uploaded to the website a brief essay on the Patrick Procktor painting illustrated here – Gervase VII (1968) – which sold for a record auction price at Christie’s, London, last week. The essay was commissioned from me by the vendor, for inclusion as the auction catalogue entry.
• The abstract painter Peter Seal, with whom I worked on his highly regarded show at Bankley Gallery, Manchester, in 2014, has just relaunched his website, having recently mounted a superb ‘at home’ show of his paintings, collages and sculptures. Do please visit the artist's website:http://www.peterseal.org/
• The David Tindle retrospective at Huddersfield Art Gallery continues to receive great feedback from visitors. It is listed in the Exhibition Listings pages of the January issue of The World of Interiors magazine, which also carries an illustration of the artist’s 1954 oil painting Broken Egg Shell. A review in The Jackdaw is imminent.
