Millais at Tate Britain
Bare bums and a fake god in the name of Art! What a day! But don't despair. The autumnal biggy at Tate Britain is nearly upon us: Millais, from 26 September 2007 to 13 January 2008. This is the first major solo exhibition of John Everett Millais' wonderful art since the Royal Academy retrospective of 1967, and works have been borrowed from "around the world to give a complete picture of the artist". This sounds far more exciting than China's Terracotta Army. Millais was one of England's finest artists, a founder member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, that fantastic last gasp of great art before the mediocrities of modernity rose to sell Philistines their paltry efforts. The bad news is the price: £11, silver surfers £10. That is 90.9%, the worst concession I've ever found. What a ripoff! Complain to your MP.
