I have been fully distracted now by the machinations about the potential of Boris Johnson.
It’s hunting quite much like he’ll be absent for definite right after the 1922 Committee elections next week (i.e. rule improve and new assurance vote – which he will get rid of) – and probably by the stop of today (i.e. 35 resignations from the payroll vote so significantly and possible to go on)
So this is a assessment of my posts about art and Boris Johnson
Portraits of Boris
This is a portrait I wrote about in Portrait finished in 2 hours wins Ondaatje Prize.
As at any time I was fascinated in what John Ward CBE, 90 this 12 months, was exhibiting by way of pastels on mid-toned Ingres paper. His will work ended up exhibited along with an certainly splendid portrait of Boris Johnson MP by Felicity Gill (which appears to be like alternatively superior in truth than it does on her web site) . Regardless of Boris describing the working experience as a privilege and “wonderful ego therapeutic massage”, Ms Gill describes how it was quite hard seeking to pin him down at his offices at The Spectator.
“The sitting was constantly interrupted….eventually I resorted to finding him to climb out of a window onto a compact roof where by he sat, captive, in an aged deckchair”
This is the portrait by Felicity Gill…….
It includes portraits of Boris as a boy or girl and growing up.
Besides a see of the residence and yard, the picture includes quite simplified photographs of Boris walking the puppy Dilyn in close proximity to to his fiancée Carrie and their child son Wilfred owning a picnic on the garden.
