Good News and Bad News. Again

As some of you already know, I had a successful cataract operation on my right eye yesterday morning. It was a relief to get it done. It will take a while for the sight to settle down and I know from previous experience that I’ll have a bit of double vision to contend with. However, it was a quick and painless experience and no overnight stay as it was in Crete nearly 18 months ago with the left eye.

Talking of the left eye, they removed a stitch but it wasn’t one that had been causing problems and I was left with Trump’s lips! I queried it and forced them to look again. It could be many things, the surgeon said, but there was nothing they could do about it. I’m not going to leave it at that but get a second opinion from the surgeon with whom I had the original consultation. What can I say but repeat that it’s the story of my life from womb to now!

The Belfast-born, Glasgow-educated artist Sir John Lavery (1856-1941) was superficially similar to his contemporary, John Singer Sargent. Along with Sargent and James McNeill Whistler, Lavery was one of the most sought-after portraitists of his day. His reputation was assured after he was asked to paint the state visit of Queen Victoria to Glasgow. He went on to paint many famous contemporaries such as Winston Churchill and Anna Pavlova. In 1917, during the First World War, he was appointed Official War Artist. Portrait of a Woman in Black Leaning on a Grand Piano was painted in 1904. His sitter was Miss Elizabeth Welsh (1843–1921), Mistress of Girton College, Cambridge, between 1885 and 1903. The painting is held by the National Gallery of Art in Rome.

‘To her alarm she heard the clock strike twelve. She fled from the ball-room; but in a moment the coach changed again to a pumpkin, the horses to mice, the coachman and postilion to rats, the footmen to lizards, and Cinderella’s beautiful dress to her old shabby clothes…

Le Déjeuner dans l’atelier by Édouard Manet is one of my favourite paintings. Some classics, I find, can pall after too many viewings — postcards, chocolate boxes and so forth. Not Le Déjeuner. Not for me.
The French artist Édouard Manet (1832-1883) might well have gone into the law had he followed the dictates of his upper-class family but his passion for art held sway. Influenced in his style by the work of Francisco José de Goya and Diego Velázquez, he chose subjects not hitherto considered suitable for art such as gypsies and beggars or nudes alongside the fully-clothed and strove towards a form of realism that paved the way for modernism. Luncheon in the Studio, or Le Déjeuner dans l’atelier, which Manet painted in 1868, is on display at the Bayerische Staatsgemaldesammlungen in Munich.

Paper Type: Poster Paper (Semi-Gloss)

  • 53 lb., 7.9 point thick poster paper
  • Recommended for large-format posters
  • Semi-gloss finish
  • More paper types available under “Paper Options”
  • Add a premium quality frame as an essential accessory
