Realist, not conformist analysis of the latest financial, business and political news

How Excellent And How Cool Is This?

We’re told that the arts will always out:

An inspiring story has surfaced about the re-emergence of more than 400 erotic drawings by the late Bloomsbury artist Duncan Grant, who lived most of his life as a criminalised gay man.

The drawings, thought to be destroyed, have been offered to the Charleston Trust, which manages Grant’s former East Sussex retreat. And what images they are: defiantly subversive and explicit multiracial homoerotica, bursting with passion, flesh, joy, love, freedom and everything else gay people were legally barred from experiencing and expressing at the time. The underlying message of Grant’s paintings is still uplifting in 2020: art will always find a way, whatever the obstacles, hardships and dangers.

Isn’t that glorious? So, that’s the Arts Council to be defunded, for art will always find a way, whatever the obstacles, hardships and dangers.

Perhaps likewise after the end of the US Presidential Debates Commission.

“still uplifting in 2020”: naughty little joke.
