The November edition of the Burlington is out. There is a bizarre advert for a 'Van Dyck', which is nothing to do with him. That aside, it looks like a good read. Articles include:

  • A neglected papal commission in Naples Cathedral: the tomb of Cardinal Alfonso Carafa, By Dorigen Caldwell
  • A bust of Bartolomeo Ruspoli by Filippo Carcani, By Maria Celeste Cola
  • The ‘St Sebastian’ of Los Andes: a Chilean cultural treasure re-examined, By Gauvin Alexander Bailey and Fernando Guzmán
  • Roman bronzes at the court of Gustavus III of Sweden: Zoffoli, Valadier and Righetti, By Chiara Teolato
  • John Hogan’s busts for Bantry, and Viscount and Lady Berehaven’s tour of Rome in 1842–43, By Flavio Boggi
  • John Chamberlain’s pliability: the new monumental aluminium works, By David J. Getsy
This month's editorial rails against the proliferation of public monuments in London's green spaces. It's an argument I have some sympathy with, as it seems every six months another patch of London's precious parkland is taken up with a memorial to this or that. An example is the Canadian war memorial fountain in Green Park, which interrupts a prime piece of park, and is always breaking down. Each cause is, however, worthy, such as the latest to Bomber Command, again in Green Park - so it is hard to argue against them for fear of being seen to argue against each respective cause. The worst offender is the new and execrable statue of Lloyd George in Parliament Square.
