Image of Did I pass muster?

Picture: Dulwich Picture Gallery

I recently gave a lecture at Dulwich Picture Gallery on Van Dyck's self-portraits. I thought it went well enough, though I was amused to hear recently that the Gallery had hired a market research company to ask the audience how they rated the evening. 'Was Dr Grosvenor interesting/amusing?', that sort of thing. I haven't yet heard anything about the audience's conclusion - good, I hope. But I'm not sure how objective the report will be, since I heard about all this from one of my most loyal followers, my mother, who gave me a glowing review. Or so she says.
