When we visit the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition I buy the published list and mark it as we go round. Foolishly, sometimes I think that I will remember a piece. Well, I did that this year, and I not only forgot the name of the artist, but what room the piece was in. I have been going through the hundreds of titles room by room, ... and then I decided to put the last shreds of my memory of the piece into Google. It was a figure on a hillside, so I typed those words and print and RA summer exhibition - and it came up in the images!

Another two delights were quotes I came across today:
Lauren Laverne: Good art never makes you feel too stupid to understand it, even when you don't.
Leonard Bernstein: To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan, and not quite enough time.
