If it helps, I'm not too fussed about correct spelling! :)

If I remember rightly, it's something like .... Domenico Theotokopoulos?

Or was that the jailbird husband in Birds of a Feather?

:oops:

Ken, you do remember rightly. I would have gone for "Domenicos", but it's always slightly dodgy with names translated out of their original language, hence my spelling comment in the question.

Well done also for possibly the only mention of Birds of a Feather that might ever appear in a high brow quiz!

OK!

Let's try something a bit cryptic...

A nickname for a certain American 20th Century artist has been suggested - minus one letter - by some as a nickname fitting for a certain 19th Century artist.

Which two artists?

Am I right in thinking that you mean the artist who is on the list of suspects as being "Jack the Ripper"? If so, it will be Jackson Pollock and Walter Sickert.

Indeed you are right in thinking so, David!

Pollock nicknamed "Jack the Dripper". Sickert mooted by some as Jack the Ripper.

All yours!

Thank you Ken. Having got off the floor after getting a high brow question right:

On which occasion, and by whom, were the following words spoken:

"...we leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return: with peace and hope for all mankind..."?
