Bartolomé Esteban Murillo's 17th-century portrait had long been thought to be a copy until an art expert visited Penrhyn Castle The 17th-century portrait of an austere-looking Spanish writer had hung in Penrhyn Castle for nearly 150 years, unvisited by art experts and assumed by the National Trust, which owns the castle, to be of no great value.

The writer, actor and comedian on the joys of cheap restaurants, Otto Dix and that single seat under the stairs on London busesBorn in Anfield, Liverpool, Alexei Sayle studied art before training to be a further-education teacher. When London's Comedy Store opened in 1979, he became its first MC and, over the following decade, became a central figure in the alternative comedy movement. He has starred in a number of TV shows including The Young Ones (1982-4) and the Emmy-winning Alexei Sayle's Stuff (1988-1991). His credits also include theatre (The Tempest, Old Vic, 1988), film (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, 1989) and radio (the award-winning Alexei Sayle and the Fish People). His book Alexei Sayle's Imaginary Sandwich Bar is out now, while the second series of his BBC radio programme of the same name is broadcast on weekdays on Radio 4. Continue reading... [...]

This immersive story of the art-punk group sent to a Russian labour camp has too many laughs to hit homeYou will remember Pussy Riot as the art-punk group who, thanks to a 40-second guerrilla performance of their song Holy Shit at a Moscow Orthodox cathedral, ended up sentenced to two years' hard labour in a penal camp after a show trial played out in the world press.Inside Pussy Riot, the latest from immersive theatre group Les Enfants Terribles (fresh from their Olivier-nominated Alice's Adventures Underground), recreates the trial and punishment doled out to three group members, in particular Nadya Tolokonnikova, associate writer of the show. Audiences are led by actors dressed as prison guards and law enforcement officers through different sets – cathedral, courtroom, labour camp. It's an opportunity to experience what it's like to have freedoms curtailed and spirits broken, albeit in the well-heeled Saatchi Gallery, which caters to some of the most privileged people in the world.

Tate LiverpoolJohn Piper's gift for making England glow in the dark is lost in a chaotic show. For sheer strangeness, try the Egyptian surrealists next doorA John Piper story – quite possibly the only Piper story. The much-lauded artist is commissioned to paint Windsor Castle during the second world war in case the buildings are destroyed. In his watercolours, the castle looks paler than ever against a series of ragingly portentous skies. The royals are not amused. George VI remarks, with some acuity: “You seem to have very bad luck with your weather, Mr Piper.”It is never a fine day in the work of John Piper (1903-92); not even in the Shell Guides which, together with his stained glass windows in the cathedrals of Liverpool and Coventry surely remain among his greatest contributions to English art. But the king's quip gathers new meaning in this very odd survey at Tate Liverpool. Here is an English landscape painter, a neo-romantic admired for his atmospheric sense of place, from the soft Wiltshire hills to the rolling Sussex Downs to the chalky Chilterns where he lived for 60 years; a war artist respected for his burned-out London and wintry desolation in the shires. But instead we are presented with Piper the internationalist.Egyptian surrealism is a thing apart. It turns the country's long coastline into a theatre of wild events Continue reading... [...]

Last night's sale of Leonardo da Vinci's Salvator Mundi for $450,312,500 at Christie's New York was a triumph – but of what, precisely? The astonishing price – more than double the previous record for a work of art sold at auction, and presumably the most expensive work of art ever – is certainly a tribute to the ingenuity and hard work of the auction house's staff across the globe. It also serves... Source [...]

There are many architects to whom an old or beautiful building should not be entrusted. Work on such structures requires a certain reticence and modesty, characteristics not often found with very successful practitioners. In the 19th century, that dreadful amateur, Sir Edmund Beckett, aka Lord Grimthorpe, the despoiler of St Alban's Abbey, is an obvious example. It is sad but necessary to place on... Source [...]
