I read a wonderful article today which helped to balance some of the selfishness that goes on in the world. We're used to hearing about treasures having to be saved from export abroad, or paintings being hidden away in bank vaults as investments. However, as an antidote to all that, a guy has just donated his entire collection of paintings, including his house, to the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield. He did this because he needed a home for his vast collection and because he 'liked the space'. Good on him!
Art needs to be seen, not hidden away!
