Just a little something to warm you up
Tuesday 10 December 1996
This covers 20 years' work of someone considered by many to be our greatest living painter. Within a few days of opening, the show has been showered with superlatives.
In today's Tabloid section, our critic Bryan Robertson says: ``Before you begin to wonder about content or what's going on in real, recognisable terms, you are electrifyingly aware of broad areas of blazing or smouldering red, a deep moody blue or a luminously verdant green practically hitting you from the wall. You're aware of a passionately decisive welter of big, slashed brush-strokes, luscious but alert and bristling in their intensity. Like the smile of the Cheshire cat in Alice, a generalised light-drenched mood seems to be transmitted from the paintings.''
You get the picture. On The Riviera (above) may not be cheaper than a radiator, but it's a lot more fun.
