I have been fascinated to watch the three part channel 4 documentary All In The Best Possible Taste, which has documented GP as he conducted his research for making six large tapestries, The Vanity of Small Differences, about the remaining differences in British classes. I was particularly struck by how much he was influenced by relies paintings of the past and by the work of Hogarth, Particularly The Rakes Progress series of paintings [and etchings] – GP even, inspired by Hogarth, included a dog in each work.

I am hoping to be able to make time to be able to see the tapestries at the Victoria Miro in London next Thursday [28 June].
