My father had a picture of a yatch over the fireplace. God knows why. It was a not very interesting picture- an artist's print by a not very interesting artist. Yesterday I took it down- as part of a general reshuffle- and replaced it with a painterly oil of a Kentish landscape that once belonged to my grandmother.

My father has been dead over ten years but I still feel a little daring and defiant when I monkey around with his stuff.

It's a painting by Eric Hesketh Hubbard. I Googled him and he's a "name" artist- best known for designing railway posters. I'd always thought it rather a dingy picture, but haul it out into the light and you can see that the muddy browns are actually blues and greens. It might well benefit from being properly cleaned.
