Further details

Ever been invited to one of those annoying parties full of trendy people showing off how very clever they are about art? And you wanted to smack them hard, or at least be able to dazzle them with a wicked witty one-liner? If so, then this is the programme for you - the Grumpy Guide to Art.

It tells you everything you need to know to look and sound profoundly clever and well informed in an art gallery. We also provide a grumpy take on some of the silliest pieces of art on earth - along with some fabulously simple definitions of some of the most famous artistic movements since man picked up a paintbrush.
