THE INFORMATION on - `The Shape of the Century'

What Is It?

Visual arts: Not just a load of giant eyeballs

Britain is not exactly renowned for its Surrealist movement. But it did happen - and it did pioneer some original ideas.

Sculpture: The Shape of the Century

The visual arts element of the Salisbury Festival has been getting stronger and stronger and this year looks like the best yet. In particular the success of showing sculpture in the beautiful setting of the Cathedral and Close is followed, and developed, by an ambitious survey of British sculpture since 1900. I say ambitious because it attempts to follow the path of English modernism from the likes of Eric Gill and Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, through Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, to contemporary sculptors such as Stephen Cox and Rachel Whiteread. It's a complicated route, but for the most part they have found a clear way.

Obituaries: Sir Dirk Bogarde

LIKE GARBO before him, Dirk Bogarde mysteriously exceeded the sum of his parts. Many of his 63 films were forever banal, while others initially thrilling and controversial were tamed or stultified by time. In a career spanning almost 60 years he willingly switched disguise, but neither wigs nor breeches, the officer's khaki nor the doctor's white coat, could long conceal his limitations of range. When he offered subtlety and suggestiveness instead of versatility those limitations appeared almost a virtue; but with the failure of that exchange in the mid-1970s his acting became almost intolerably arch and repetitive.

exhibition: from the bomb to the beatles

Meander down memory lane - be it yours or your granny's - as The Imperial War Museum launches a major exhibition focusing on post-war Britain. "From the Bomb to the Beatles", designed by Sir Terence Conran, chronicles changes in Britain between 1945 and 1965; from post-war austerity to "you've never had it so good". Memorabilia includes stage costumes worn by John Lennon and Marilyn Monroe, a pink sapphire ring which belonged to Elvis, and art and sculpture by artists Henry Moore and Peter Blake. Also highlighted are classic domestic items such as tin baths, washing powder and Minis. A complementary programme of demonstrations and talks addresses the development of the consumer lifestyle, from fashion to food and film.

Arts: Material witness

For George Kennethson sculpting in stone was like 'walking on a tightrope'. But his mastery of the medium kept him faithful, despite critical neglect.

Henry Moore sent back to his office
