Paris in the 20s,

Harlem in the 30s,

The Spanish Civil War,

And the verdant English countryside, raped by motorways but still surviving.

There is still - just about - time to catch this wonderful documentary about the artist Edward Burra which makes me very keen to see this exhibition.

And in the light of recent discussions about biographers and artists' lives, here was a man who said, 'I don't tell anybody anything.'

I'm intrigued by the dancing skeletons mentioned in the link about the exhibition. It's Devil's Night tonight and Halloween tomorrow so they fit right in with the mood here. Which reminds me, I should really be looking for inspiration for a pattern for my jack-o'-lantern!
