The new Tate Britain landscape show I mentioned below is well worth a visit. I enjoyed it, especially the juxtaposition of older and newer works. The business of having 'no long descriptive labels' is still daft though, as it was precisely because I was looking at modern works (outside my usual comfort zone) that I wanted to know more information about them. I wasn't the only visitor to be found looking up details on their mobile...

One contemporary picture I greatly liked was the above Black Square 2008 by Gillian Carnegie. It's a brilliant bit of painting. Indeed, I liked it so much that I idly enquired how much such a thing might cost. The answer is... too much.
