Tree Of Life Wins

In a poll of just under 4,000 Art Fund supporters, Rachel Whiteread’s golden frieze Tree of Life on the facade of the Whitechapel Gallery in East London was voted the favourite work of art supported by the Art Fund in 2012. Second was Titian’s Diana and Callisto, bought for the nation. Third was Yinka Shonibare’s Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle, commissioned by Mayor Bouncy Boris for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square. And fourth was Grayson Perry’s series of tapestries on class mobility The Vanity of Small Differences. Roger Hiorns' Seizure came fifth. The voters had a list of only 16 works from which to choose (CLICK).
