Oh! The word verification is 'saymo' - it agrees with me!

Sorry to be boring but can I refer you to the link which gives a detailed biography and his links to the PRB. I only really add text when it is not available elsewhere, as so much has been said about the Brotherhood and their connections.

So sorry. Didn't mean to be irritating. I like the way the pictures 'exist' on this blog.

. . . But it wasn't the biographies I was meaning . . . I was tantalised by the print itself . . . about why the square is there when the painting drifts over its edges. It may well be that leaving it to 'speak for itself' is enough. In fact, I find this picture has so much 'presence' one would be moved by it even if it were of a man unknown by another unknown.

You're never irritating lucy, my misunderstanding. But unfortunately I have no idea. It is very good and his other works don't seem like this.
