Been on holiday – lots of sun, wind and water. With art cropping up in unexpected places. The above is taken in Brighton, where we visited the Pavillion. If the building indicates the man, George IV must have been expensive and showy and structurally un-sound. And yes – that is a very shallow opinion indeed.

To counteract this I’ve just ordered ‘Prinny and his pals’ , which book – in spite of its title – promises to show him to be to be one of the most enlightened monarchs England has ever had. Well, wait and see.

How is it that the british have an innumerable number of biographies, where us Dutch have to make do with just a few?
