Browsing through my page likes on FB, and the National Gallery popped up with an advert for their new exhibition about the connections between painters and the paintings they possessed: ‘Painters’ Paintings’. This Titian: ‘Portrait of Gerolamo (?) Barbarigo’ was the image they used:
I recognised this and was here wondering where on earth I’d seen it before -I haven’t really looked at Titian that closely. But then, it came to me…last year at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, their exhibition, ”Reality’ had this painting by Allan MacDonald called Candy Man.
At the time, we thought it was Jesus on a moped, which was hilarious, but now we know! Still love it, mind!
