Last week, for the first time in my life, I visited the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. The visit was great fun – stimulating, amusing, at times controversial.
Some works were beautiful and some executed with great skill. Others were so amateurish that one wonders how they got in (a potato print?) Here are some that caught my eye…
At first glance, the above work looked like a photograph of an antique ceramic. It won the Jerwood Prize for drawing.
It was the price of the work below (£210,000) rather than the work itself , that made it a talking point and rather memorable!!
