The Art Newspaper has given another glowing review for London’s New Scene: Art and Culture in the 1960s by Lisa Tickner [see previous posts] including this mention of Boty “London’s New Scene is as elegantly handsome as David Hemmings in a pair of white jeans. The picture research is formidable: fashion shoots, cigar adverts, protest posters, film stills and Sunday Times strip cartoons run side by side with paintings by Hockney, Derek Boshier, Peter Blake, Pauline Boty, Bridget Riley et al. We are treated to lavish behind-the-scenes documentation of Russell at work on Pop Goes the Easel, and Antonioni researching and shooting Blow-Up.” The full review is here: [link]
Gareth Harris, chief contributing editor of The Art Newspaper will be talking with art historian Lisa Tickner about her book on IG Live tomorrow – Friday 10th July at 2pm BST/9am EDT Instagram Live. See @theartnewspaper.official for further info.
