Art is a funny feeling inside. Up to you the viewer to decide. Based on a conversation I’ve paraphrased: where Baroness Margaret Thatcher’s hate of Francis Bacon, expressed on TV (both whom I met and spent time with) as you do – Reading University Professor of Fine Art Martin Froy explained, “If a picture can be removed in the World, would you miss it? If you don’t, then it is a generic image of lesser reputation more like repetition, be it you like it or not.“


The modern day Cambridge artist, Nicholas Juett, was surprised to discover the journal while visiting Cambridge University library where he looked up ‘Juet’ in their books of old newspaper-clippings. Continuing with the theme are new pictures embracing his ‘self’.
