Georgy Girl

Continuing the grey theme, yesterday morning I made it to the Gerhard Richter exhibition in Plymouth. In this part of the world we rarely have an opportunity to see work by one of the significant living figures in contemporary art – and I’m shallow enough to be impressed by someone whose paintings sell for £30m. As with most major cities these days the pavements were a mix of bright young girls attending the university and the not so bright girls of a similar age pushing prams. Of course what you don’t see strolling down the street so fancy-free are the girls hard at work who pay the taxes that keep the show on the road.
