Out With The Old, In With The New [Oct. 20th, 2018|09:53 am]
Tony Grist
The lady at the charity shop asked if I was moving house and I said,  no, we put two households together five years ago and have been off-loading the surplus ever since.

Actually, it's not quite as simple as that.  The more complex truth is we're always buying things- including from charity shops- and the new is constantly pushing out the old. I gave away three framed pictures yesterday but only because I'd bought a couple of 18th century topographical prints the week before. 

One of the "new" prints is from an original by Paul Sandby. How could I not buy a Sandby?

Wasn't Sandby one of the founders of the Royal Academy? I'm not that familiar with his work but for some reason I remember his association with the RA.

Yes, he was a founder-member of the RA- and is best known as a watercolour artist and print-maker.
