Malevich. A personal favourite is "Englishman in Moscow" which hangs in an Amsterdam gallery

Chris, you have so much else going on I'm not surprised you forgot that one!

Dr Lecter is right, it was Kasimir Malevich, one of my favourite artists.

Over to you, hlecter.

That is right. The gallery is well worth a visit,particularly if you appreciate 20th Century British art.

I keep meaning to go...

In 2010, the Minerva, Chichester, staged a revival of Edward Bond's Bingo. Sir Patrick Stewart gave a radically different performance of the role he had taken in the original RSC production of the play. What was the name of his character, coming to terms with his own mortality?
