"I guess that's always been sort of like a goal of mine s O I developed this forum has an idea inspired by Various museums have gone to his young person, Ron Dalzell on others, and by the way, runs wonderful book that came out around 1918 1982 Shell Guide to the History of London. It's a fairly large book, I guess you'd call it Ah Coffee table book, but my gosh it is. It's fantastic in London at that time, there's been so much development sense. But the shell guide to the history of London. That is one of the best biographies of that great city that you'll ever read by William Ronald Dalzell. Glad to say a friend of mine and definitely a great mentor. Who brought me, I guess to you, but this program begins actually across the pond there, it's Scotland to be specific at the National Gallery of Scotland. Uh, right on that trip. Decided to head north. I've been in London for a little bit, met some wonderful people on traveled north and then was going to meet meet up with them later on for Christmas. But I said, if I don't go north now, I'll probably get, you know, bog down here in London and in England, and I'm never gonna get up to Scotland, so I went up there almost right away. I went to Edinburgh Marvelous City. The first thing you notice when you get off the train if you want If you get there by train, you get out of my think Victoria Station. The first thing you notice is the smell of wheat that hangs in the air. It's like a combination off, well bred, and we like it like a loaf of honey. Wheat bread permeates everything in the city, and that's because of the breweries that are there in Edinburgh. It's a marvelous snow. When I talk to people about that, he said. Just live here for a few years and see if you still like that smell because it goes everywhere in and it does. But what a wonderful welcoming for your first visit Edinburgh to be able to smell that lost thing. Honey aroma that goes everywhere because of those breweries. One of my first visit was to the museum, the National Gallery of Scotland, now part of the National Gallery's of Scotland. They're off Princess Street. In the heart of Edinburgh, right near Edinburgh Castle. The fabulous Um, neoclassical building. Not very large When you look at it, In fact, like the Frick, it's one of those museums where you can see pretty much. Everything that they have on on exhibition. If you give it like a couple hours, maybe two or three hours, you can pretty much see everything that's there. Although there's a lot more in storage they were on. Maybe about eight years ago, the director was on the show on It was like coming home for me, and I wanted to talk about a few works of art that really made a great impact on me and I we're going to go to some other museums, but the National Gallery of Scotland there in Edinburgh Number one has to be the full length portrait of the Honorable Mrs Graham by Thomas Gainsborough is completed and 17 77 is of a woman by name of Mary Mary Graham, who had married A man by the name of Thomas Graham, who went into the military relatively late in life. He was a landowner. Ah, he was an empty for a number of years. They were very happily married. On. We see Mrs Graham around the time of her blood actually been married, maybe about two or three years and you see Mrs Graham in full length by Thomas Gainsborough As he is really going into his mature period, the 17 eighties you're gonna open up his brushwork even more. The lighting is going to be even more dramatic, but you have basically the formula there of the grand manner. Height of Thomas Gainsborough, his career in the Mrs Graham portrait. You see her almost like like like someone from the period of Van Dyke from 100 years before, in fact, very influential. The Gainsborough the painter Anthony Van Dyke, the way that he painted the court of Charles the first Was very influential to him. So it kind of like uses in some ways contemporary costume, but then mixes it with little elements of from 100 years before from the time of the Stuarts and then brings it in. You see that with Mrs Graham, you see the beautiful plumed hat on top of her head. Her lightly powdered hair still piled up in the style of the 17 seventies, although Pretty soon. That style is gonna loosen up as women in the 17 eighties think that? Well, that's how Roman women probably wore their hair. There was a sort of neoclassical craze in terms of that went into fashion. Not just hairstyles, but clothing the way country houses would be would be built. If you have this neo classicism that becomes the rage in Britain, beginning in the 18th century by the mid 17 hundreds. It really is something in so many of the great country houses that we see there were built during that time re converting earlier structures, and then those would be converted later on in the 19th century, sometimes sort of British neo Gothic style that was very popular in the beginning of the 18 hundreds. But Mrs Graham was wonderful City in front of that painting and looking at this image that I had seen in our history books from the time I was very small was really quite a revelation. I love that painting. I love it. Still, By the way, I'm gonna be talking about the National gallery. I don't get it to get to it. Today we'll pick it up with a part two and another time. I In subsequent years, though, I would learn to appreciate the study that Gainsborough does of Mrs Graham. Portrait bust. It's a study, though, for the full length and Edinburgh and I think that I like it even more for the facial expression for for the psychology, even if you will..

He made a very Realization that you'd put a lot of arts but americans had money on. He convinced his father to allow him to go over to america. A small dealership. They're also under the name. The dean brothers. Why this is important is because joseph defend spearheaded. What historically issue fair to as the great art drain over europe now. This is exactly what it sounds like. Dean was instrumental in shifting a large portion of european master paintings who refer to european masters we as a wide variety of artists which include rafael. Thomas gainsborough davinci. Peter paul ribbons so on and so on so the great art. Jane was essentially kick started because there was at the turn of the twentieth century there was a sudden borst of what we call or refer to as new money in the united states and divine saw this as an excellent opportunity because this was a new wave of wealth within america who actually became obsessed with the art collections of europe's great rulers. And why this worked in defense fever is because while the american millionaires of demeans tied couldn't become lords and ladies the kitchen europe we could buy their family portraits and other works that the had once owned which was a way of them strengthening their feeling of identification and equality with british ability and with the great rulers merchant princes all the renaissance which may seem like a strange thing.

Get you a painting once belonged to these. People have is a little bit of question. Marks of hovering around has provenance and has techniques. And things like that.

Dean was hanging the beautiful bait in front of these uber wealthy knitting that's of deep desire all climates and lineage which they just didn't seem to have which may seem strange to us or no having not being a millionaire myself. I don't know what you go through when you when you get new money. And it was by dangling.

They've even paid for that night. That's a classic technique of divine which the dealer phones moral from the Resulted in a sale. And as someone who has seen this technique used personally.

ton of Halloween content it's just kind of clumping all at the end whereas in previous years it's kind of been like every other one throughout the month right just because of scheduling needs it's ended up that are October stuff all coming out really in the back half of October hopefully that will be enough to tide people over I know it's hard to wait this extra two weeks I now as someone who celebrates Halloween virtually every day of the year I understand the topic that we're covering today is something I've wanted to talk about for a really long time hi and that is F W Murnau I make no secret that I love for ought to you as well as a lot of his other work of Nosrat you has a very special place in my heart see above re Halloween every day but Murnau's life is so much more than that one film and that's actually happened fairly early in his film career so there's a lot that happened afterwards he was truly an innovator in cinema and a visual storyteller whose work is even today hotly debated for its merits Alz but its influence is felt in so many films that you see today where the filmmakers were influenced by Murnau So you are still getting the benefits of his efforts whether you know it or not Murnau was born Friedrich Wilhelm poop in Bielefeld Germany on December twenty eighth eighteen eighty nine his brother Robert later described him who went by his middle name of Ville him by saying quote from the very beginning my brother overflowed with imagination and their family was well off their father heinrich plume had inherited a profitable textile business which he sold for pretty tidy sum I'm and then bought a sprawling state the families children would put on plays and the garden and that's where bill home really fell in love with the idea of Peter Apparently one of his sisters his mother was his father's second wife and one of his older sisters was initially like directing all of them to do the he's plays but he pretty quickly was like no I wanna make this stuff But their idyllic privileged childhood was abruptly interrupted when Heinrich PUPA sold the family property and sunk all of his money into what turned out to be a bad investment they weren't destitute at that point but they did have significant downgrade in their lifestyle but villains love of putting on productions continued unabated and his brothers who wanted to encourage his creativity despite their father thinking that that was a waste of time actually built a little theatre for him to put on his shows complete with lighting and moving scenery who was a voracious reader was at the top of his class in school all his father wanted him to go on to become a professor and to that end he attended university in Berlin where you started working as an actor under the name of Murnau this new name was in the hopes of his father not discovering what he was doing but they'll homeless tall about six foot four and very easy to recognize as soon a family friends spotted him in a performance and mentioned it to his parents Heinrich then cut his son off financially but Murnau's grandfather his mother's side started sending him a monthly allowance so he could stay in Berlin he was still going to school he hadn't shirked to that part of this responsibility he also apparently was living a rather lavish life which had caused some problems when his father was called with these like huge debts that that he had amassed kind of putting only the finest furnishings and art his little apartment but yeah he he thought he could just work is an actor on the side while he also to school but after Berlin Ville home went on school in Heidelberg and there he studied Literature Art History and philosophy and it was also there in nineteen o eight that he connected with Max Reinhardt. austrian-born Reinhard it was a well known figure on the German theater scene and he was impressed by Ville Hill when he saw him perform in a play that was put on by the university he was so impressed in fact that he with him a place in his theater school with full scholarship if Murnau agreed to attend for a full six years in nineteen eleven Murnau Assistant Reinhardt and the production of a play called the miracle which was written by Carl von Miller he had been exploring directing and he realized that he preferred that to acting in this move to directing was motivated by a certain practicality he knew there being as tall as he was would be a hindrance to being cast in leading roles but his height really made no difference to working as a director yeah he was so distinctive looking that he was like no one is going to want to cast me from one show to another because I will just look like the same dude no matter what I do World War One though did put a damper on art former now for a little while who served in the German military he was I called up as a foot guard and then he was promoted and then became a company commander and eventually transferred to the Air Force and while flying with German Air Force he crashed eight times but he away every time without any serious injuries and after his last crash landing in Switzerland he was arrested and interned at undermined where he used his time as a prisoner of war to work on a film script and produce theater with his fellow internees according to fellow officer Major Gung shrum every evening Murnau would recite a poem I'm called the pianist of death to the officers and according to the same account he also carried a stick with him which was made out of propeller which was full of bullet holes he was so influential that a lot of men he served with also started carrying similar sticks is sort of a strange wartime bashing trend that burnell had created did while Murnau made it through the war seemingly unscathed his best friend Hans our inbound Diga was killed at the front and that was a loss that Murnau greed really deeply the loss of Hans was perhaps so difficult because he had been one of the few people that Murnau was actually close to even pronounce family was often kept it was linked particularly during the time that he had changed his name in worked on his secret acting career there is a story about one of his brother's going to the same places him but telling his friends and other people in the family like oh I can't I'm not allowed to look at at villa like I can't I can't acknowledge that related to him but thing his closest friend really seemed to catalyze desire to connect more deeply to his siblings and his family which he did in his early thirties after the war

Subject Bela Lugosi Murnau directed Lugosi in an adaptation of the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde story that was originally published in eighteen eighty six Murnau's version which was titled janus-faced was a critical success although like a lot of his work modern audiences have no access to it as it has been lost almost half of his film were lost over the years Murnau's work in one thousand nine hundred eighty two is what has truly endured though and that's what's given the director his longevity as a person of interest among horror fans especially it was then that he directed the cult classic Nas for me to even if you don't know the film odds are that you have seen images it count Orlov who's the vampire at the center of the plot is just an unmistakable figure this is what I'm going to confess to holly that I've never seen this film all the way through but I immediately can call what count or lack looks like the mind like and how he moves like all of that I WANNA my dramatic throwing of things across the room but I'll forgive you you're missing out though I know I know there's so much media to consume count or lack is tall and thin with large pointy ears heavy eyebrows and long pointy front teeth and he's one of cinema's oldest and most iconic villains and serves as sort of a shorthand for a vampire now and coming up we'll talk about some of the rumors around the making of Toronto but first we're GONNA pause for words from one of our sponsors.

"That improves transparency in the one hundred percent. And I am positive if if blockchain is the answer then fantastic nothing has been the answer so far. And I also think there's a difference. You know with talk today about providence issues with Leonardo and so on and so forth. I think there's any so much can do for older work. What you need to do is start tracking work today. And at least in two hundred years there's going to be a record of the best relation to the truth. Two hundred years. Podcast year in review. And. I'm going to ask you about stories, which perhaps words is way t-. And we're more engaging. An entertaining multi. Let's talk about this wonderful gains per story. We covered it in podcast. This is one of my favorite stories of the year. It is about mergers. So I'm not. Known for we should use the word entertaining. Anyway, it was the story that we ran earlier this year about to have gains his relatives. And I was working with Mark bills. The curator or director of the gains house on the story for an expedition it he was doing and Mark discovered that two of gainst relatives had been involved in bankruptcy case. And there was a row with someone over the return of the money and they had threats against their live. And I was able to find newspapers from seventeen thirty eight which gave the details, and they were pretty horrific the with threats against the uncool and cousin of Thomas Gainsborough who was the young artist at the time and the cousin was threatened with either being shot or hung and the newspaper report said that he was being accused of of being the ROY. Odes oss. Now, this was an expression we don't normally use in the newspapers I had to ask my editor could exception to use it because it was from a historic document from seventeen thirty eight. So we did. And I also discovered that the two men had indeed been murdered and one of them was murdered in a London pub. So we have the details of what happened astonishingly after all those many years. I mean, the interesting question to me is what the implications were for the the the artist he was he was only I think twelve the time. It must have been traumatic have to his close relatives murdered and AM sakes. But is nice. They all called Thomas Gainsbourg. Yes. And one wonders what the impact. Did it make him more determined to succeed in his professional certainly didn't put him off? So I think it's throws a new light on one of the really great British artists will any stories which could your this year, I can match eighteenth century murders, I'm afraid, but I well my highlight of the year is the Victoria Beckham got behind old master portraits, which is got to be one of the most unexpected and bizarre. I mean, a former Spice Girl getting into either fifteenth sixteenth seventeenth century paintings. But she didn't end to get behind them. She is really waving their flag, and it works that they look good in her store. It's not a one night wonder she's done it. Again, this issue there. There were four still lives in her showroom in London. She has plans in New Yorkers. Well, and I just think you know, what it's collaborative it's unexpected. It's an era of them. Innovatory Beckham a fashion icon. She could so easily have picked a contemporary artist and splashed her name ever. I think it's really exciting. One wonders did to Beckham conceive of. Into into this infatuation with the old masters before or after the Leonardo sold for four hundred fifty million dollars. I mean, she says it was visit to the Frick that had inspired her. I think either portrait Sharon southeast. I think there are links because poetry was where she started. But no, it was definitely after. Okay. Lastly, I'm gonna ask you both for your exhibition of the year Martin Stott with well, then you won't be surprised the time going to choose van gov. And the expedition I would spotlight is next Bish on often Japan which was in Amsterdam vanguard museum spring, and it was meticulously researched very beautifully. Presented and told the story about how Japanese art and up knees prints in particular hood influence fan golf in his artistic development and his paintings and seeing the exhibition once again made me feel how exotic Japanese prints would have appeared in the night in the late nineteenth century. We're so used now with computer screens and everything to see bright colorful images. But in those times it wasn't. And it must have been mind blowing to the artists the impressionists who were influenced by Japanese prints to see these vivid colors, and these strong outlines and very strong images. So that's my choice of the expedition of the year that REM. Minds. We will tune is key Cokie rating show at Tate Britain next year, which is all about Van Gogh from Britain, which we must get you back onto the Costa took about buying Meli your show. The start says also a modern Manatt show, which is the poughkeepsie nineteen thirty to show at Tate modern which I really really didn't want to like as much as I did. Because I thought modern irritate Monge in contemporary art, really. But it just it was amazing about his art. It was amazing about how the year affected him personally and professionally and also important things like the rise of fascism. It really was I thought it was spectacular. But can I ask you Ben in the hope you're going to give us something contemporary? I was gonna say take Motrin. But actually, I'm gonna probably now you said that I completely agree with your it was it was one of the great exhibitions I've ever seen. I think there was one room way. Where we we saw the works that had done over the course of I think six weeks, and then there's even the section which was done over about ten days. And it was masterpiece after masterpiece in and the level this sort of predict level of greatness. Yeah. It was it was spellbinding. I am right now. I'm probably gonna go further back. There were many great contemporaries, but I don't think any show acted me as much as chose the first show at the roller kademi, it's a collection, which if you ask anybody, what was the greatest collection of all time, then Chelsea verse collection is right up there. And while it wasn't able to piece together all the masterpieces. There are so many masterpieces that were that were in that collection that can't be lent. But still it was just astonishing. It was room after room move extrordinary paintings, the there was one room in the middle of it with all those amazing dyke portrait's chose I and it was it was sort of room where you were sink to your knees with the gravity of the great works around you so yes, chose the first at the Royal Academy for me. But I wanted to ask why they didn't have the Leonardo painting because it was thought to belong to gel, and I think the raw collection for a moment fought back trying to ask to. Zero it. But in the end, I think they thought it was rather sensitive improperly rather wisely declined put in alone application. Let's the great way to come full circle in the conversation melting.

"Yeah. Each people house. These brought to you in this OC with Bonhams auctioneers since seventeen ninety three with expertise in more than sixty categories of collecting it specialists will connect you with your passion. Find what defines you at Bonhams dot com. Hello and welcome to the art newspaper podcast. I'm Ben Luke coming out this week. I talked to rose, Lee Goldberg the founding director and chief curator of the New York by new performer about her new book performance. Now, live aren't for the twenty first century court to go here. But first we can travel back to the eighteenth century and delve into the grisly events in the early life of the artist. Thomas Gainsborough, the cover story of the Tober printed edition of the art newspaper is headline murders. Most found it explodes new research begun by Mark bills, the director of gains housing sub break the artist birthplace in eastern England and continued by the newspaper zone, Martyn, Bailey and delighted that Mark and Martin are here with me in the studio. Multi. Let's start by saying exactly what happened. Well, it was seventeen thirty eight in sunbury where the gains profoundly lived and the uncool and the cousin of the artist were involved in financial matters and claiming over bankruptcy case. And the other side was very belligerent and began threatening the gains per family and begin with a threatening letter with sent to the uncle and the cousin saying that they should drop the claim. Otherwise they would face death and the was the second letter of some months later reiterating this. In the meantime, the cousin had been murdered. And after the second letter, the angle was murdered Mark. Can you tell us about the research which led you to this discovery will? It was a piece in the London gazette which which. Which mentioned there was a reward for death threats and had the dotes of the death threats and information about them, and that tied with your the contested information. We had about Gainsborough's uncle and cousin the time in London that the time of their deaths time, they made their wills. I'll that we we because he was intriguing and it seemed the fact that they'd gone to the secretary of state and offer to reward that there was something in this. It wasn't just, you know, not all the date Stallard and it would seem very clear that that that that that it was it was murder. And how did the story developed from there? What was the next piece of research to be uncovered? Well, I mean, that's, you know, we had lots of information about Gainsborough them. We sort of them we went to, then we started to put together the catalog, and then I met with Martin who then came up with the wonderful death rates would just in the Nick of time, it has to be said because we could add them to the catalog, and they furnished viz wonderful detail actually unconfirmed that murder was absolutely. It wasn't admitted. So just before I ask you to read out these grisly details most in these threats, I think we should establish the all three of the people that we're talking about the artist, his uncle and his cousin. All cool Thomas. And so we'll refer to them as the artists the younger cousin, if we can't, if that's okay, but Martin go ahead. Tell us about these threats and the details within them. Yes. Well, in the first reddening letter, the. The anonymous writer said, we will come down and blow you up with gone gunpowder. God damn you or else. The poor unfortunate cousin would be fed a meal that you will not like a week earlier. The enormous writer said that his gang had been just behind the cousin and described him as the rogues OSs. Now the in the cousin must've been very worried and taking these threats very seriously because they actually both wrote their wills very shortly afterwards. And there was a second threatening letter sent sent a short time later with an ultimatum, and the ultimatum said, you must drop your financial claim within seven days or else. And after that ultimately expired five days later, the cousin was buried, so his body must have been taken to Sudbury an all the arrangements made. So he must have been killed literally within a few hours after the end of the expulsion of the three, the end of the ultimatum. Now, what's remarkable is that after this, the ankle was undeterred in pursuing. He's this debtor despite the fact that you know his son was dead, which is a remarkable state of affairs, isn't it? There was a sort of relentlessness to his proceed. Yes, it is incredible that. The cousin was killed, and then the the coil carried on fearlessly and six months later to died. Now I discovered what happened. Thanks again to a local newspaper, the weekly miscellany recorded that he died in London pub the golden fleece in corn hill. Now, the unusual to dine a pop in this, you've had too much to drink, but one wonders whether he was actually fed a meal that he would not. Like anyway, he died in the pub so it is a stunning the brazen threats were made and to people when I did so Mark in your essay in the catalogue, you're able to sort of straddle this together in into a picture. And I think that he wouldn't, you know you would pursue the. Debt. If your son had been murdered, you wouldn't want to give up on people not possibly wasn't so worried about his own life, but I didn't know. I, it's, it's, it's it is. It is is difficult to know. We also know the pub- the where his life ended was just around the corner from the coach top from Sabrina. London is fairly easy to get to suburb from London. Probably these than it was today. As a regular thing, and it was around just around the corner. I mean, I think the most astonishing thing is against bro. Just, you know, six months later was going to London getting off of that same coached up, of course, in east of London. An that must have been quite a because he was there because of the money of his of his left him. But he must have been very aware that this the debtor taken place in a very close to that, but he was never threatened himself, but it was the, you know, the the wealthier parts of the family, the other two Thomas's. So we should say that that Thomas games for the artist at this stage is eleven years old and he benefits directly through his uncle. He does, I mean, is on call. I mean that side of the family had build them out against father, went bankrupt in seventy thirty three. And though the guest house. Was bought by that side of the family and they were allowed to continue to live there so so. So when gains games died, he left twenty pounds and with further possibility of another twenty pounds for him, which doesn't sound an awful lot, but a lot more. But it still wasn't. It wasn't an enormous amount, but it gave him enough and and it was in in the will to find a light Handicraft. And the also left five shillings a week against his father because skins father was had difficulties with money, and possibly that was to do with with drinking or gambling we done, but he was runner at found money quite difficult. So most, what do you think about how this affected the early life of the artist? Well, it's very intriguing. I mean, the these murders what impact it would have had on the artists. I mean, after we said he was eleven years old. He was quite young and it must have been highly traumatic. He presumably attended the funerals and. Sudbury was a small town. It must have been very difficult for the young man. Mark is quite right. They didn't financial terms the the artists side of the family gained enormously, and that wealth helped to send the artists the young artist London, where he would begin his career. But it's interesting to speculate one can only speculate on what the emotional fact must've been. It must've been very upsetting and one wonders really why the answers father wanted to send him to London. You would've thought the family might feel that they should keep together in this difficult time. But it's possible that the father thought that gains brother, the artists, the young man would actually be safer in an anonymous large city rather than in sun breezy where one's movements could be very closely observed, and it must be must be very difficult. From eleven year old to leave the comfort of home. After this very difficult situation, it must have had a major impact on his personal life and probably on his art. But I think that's really for Mark to comment on. Indeed, Mark, I'm really interested in in the that relates to to gains as far the and the fact that he received a small of money on a weekly basis from his brother from the Oakland, it was murders and the rest of his life rather than Linke given a lump sum or newsy news was a weekly thing which was sort of, so he wouldn't, you know, to void penury, right. And the town looked after him to a degree. He was given an rolls and things, but they're always in debt, particularly to the when he died, was in debt. The assets seized after which was in in seventeen forty eight actually when returns. Subra from from London, but I think with with gains breeze, moved to London, I think was it wasn't particularly stipulated in the will that he goes to London, but it was his father's wish. You went to London and was really because of his talent is an artist. There was no way that you could really train and develop that ability that he clearly had early on that the place to do that was was was in in the in the city. And I think that's one of the extraordinary things I've always thought looking early gains. Brett is even given this money for an apprenticeship because president is normally seven years and you paid an amount. He couldn't afford a painting apprenticeship, which customer seventy eight ninety dollars, but it was it didn't become an engraver or anything. Any fat, even in Greg studio didn't become an engraver address. He always held out to be an artist, which from his background was quite an extraordinarily very, very single minded. And whether whether the impact of really traumatic events makes people more single-minded makes more is at no. But certainly the shadow of debt was always been against his live. I mean, one of the letters letters says, rather, I built my life upon sandy foundations rights, but actually against. She always remained famous as he was not one of those artists dropped out of fashion too, terribly term. I think there's always an element of of of get didn't give. I mean, he's never overconfident gains in certain ways, and there's an element of of thing which which comes from that sort of debt really right at the same time he was as you say, there was a single mindedness and there was sort of say, not overconfident, certainly single-mindedness in his in his sort of squabbles with the Royal Academy later in his life. He knew he wanted his works to be displayed. Princeton he did, and he was quite happy to fall out quite happy to take the measure of removing all his pitches and never exhibited at the wrong kademi again because it wouldn't hangs pitches has wanted them. Again. It was a bit of positioning against because he knew the role academy would not agree to which is, and it built a gallery behind Schaumburg house. And I think he knew that that was a way of positioning himself to as a sort of again. Roll academy to degree. Let's go back to some of the early pictures and particularly how his father's may have contributed to the production of some of these works. And I'm particularly intrigued by this Mr. MRs Carter in the Tate which the cat looks at least in the exhibition, but it's a work, which is always puzzled me. And you think it may have a sort of satirical intent? Well, images, it is a really unusual pitcher. I mean, one might look at and say, it's actually a bad pitcher. I don't. I don't think I don't think to be done it is, but, but it is very unusual for Gainsborough because it's not the, it tastes. The taste will pitcher that you would expect from a good case. But this time it painted quite a lot of double portrait or small family portraits and of himself, and his wife and everything of curb is and, and they're all run restraining nice, red ways code, you know, little try on hat looking, very elegant. But of course, Mr. MRs. Carter, nothing like it is his old-fashioned wig which must be what well out of fashion by seventeen fifty over completely a big west with over decorated. Whiskered is stockings. Don't quite fit their sort of ruffled and pulled up over his legs, and his wife is about half his side and she looks like she has a subpoena head. I mean, it is really odd and when it was sold, it was there was a note with it which was traditionally done, no, this was done for a favor. So whether it was done to pay off a dead. We can only speculate people are gonna have a very rich experience discovering the early life of Thomas Gainsborough Gainsbourg's house and is great because the exhibition being on there. And of course you in the house of the challenges of Thomas skins were just before, you know, all these events happened and just around the corner, whereas on coll- live to is murdered is now a French restaurant, which I think it links very nicely to the Hugh links as well with gains bizarrely family. So yeah, this quite a lot to see, say, thank you both very much for joining me. Thank you. Thank you. You

But now the government says a small number of leopards can be hunted legally much of the demand comes from China where leopard bones are used in traditional medicine from Beijing world affairs, editor John Simpson reports. There are some of the most distinctive and beautiful animals on earth. Now, the critically endangered leopards a solitary animals wondering over wide stretches of territory and farmers hate them for the damage, they do to livestock wildlife experts estimate that in South Africa. There are now only between three and five thousand roaming, leopards left. And yet recently the South African government announced rich two year moratorium on the hunting of leopards would be lifted for now on a quarter of five leopards in the Limpopo area and two in KwaZulu Natal can be killed legally each year. But that's nothing to the numbers of the killed illegally. Their bones are in particular demand in the far east in Chinese traditional medicine, leopard bones aground up and infused in wine, which cure stiffen aging joints. So it's believed and leopard bones are easily available. You can't now bring them into the country, but it still perfectly legal for dealers to sell their existing stocks. And that's encouraged the smuggling of leopard bone from Africa, particularly South Africa to China. The position with tiger bones, which have also been used extensively in traditional medicine is completely different nowadays, the Chinese government stamps down heavily on the sale of any body parts from Tigers, but buying leopard bone is as simple as logging onto the internet. I've asked my local producer here lily Li to check for two things on Taub. Oh, China's equivalent of EBay, which is run by the Alibaba conglomerate, and is the world's largest e commerce website. Okay. So if you type in tiger bones tiger bones. Okay. Search and then right away this picture jumps up, and I can see a tiger in it. And the words read protect the earth. Alibaba is inaction and here it says Tigers are going extinct it encourages you here to press this button to report illegal products. Now, let's try lipid. Bones bones. Okay. Search and then right away. I can see quite a few products of leopard bones, and here, for example, there are two bottles of leper Bom wines medicine wines. China contrary to what a lot of people in the west believe doesn't like being cast as the enemy of wildlife conservation and has banned the trade in elephant ivory. And as we've seen the body parts of Tigers. But for some reason, the leopard bone trade is still thriving and leopards a dying in sizable numbers as a result.
