The Inaugural Talk to the Twilight Lawns Art Appreciation Society.
My inaugural talk, ‘A Rebuttal Against the Unfortunate Need for Nudity in Art’ to the newly formed Art Appreciation Society seemed to be exceptionally well attended, though I think next time we should leave medication until after any future talks as it will be easier to assess how many are there through choice and not, as it were, an inability to move due to tranquilisation.
I think the ladies in particular were most taken with my slides of bluebell woods and thatched cottages and I would like in particular to thank Lady Lavinia Grosmont-Beardsley for her cogent, enlightening and above all, loud, remarks, though I would be most grateful if she could, in future talks, try and restrain herself from airing her knowledge until the appropriate final discussion time. I do find it difficult to keep my thread, as it were, when someone is heckling. Perhaps her talents may be better suited to the ikebana class so that she may delight us all with her artistic endeavours with daffodil and twig?
I felt there could have been a little more interaction during the Q & A time at the end but it was heartening to see the spirited show the Major put up in defence of Nudity in Art, though he of course would be the first to admit he knows almost nothing about True Art.
