Welcome to ‘Waldy and Bendy’s Adventures in Art’ – the podcast they couldn’t stop.
I’m Waldy – otherwise known as Waldemar Januszczak, art critic of the Sunday Times – and with my co-host Bendor ‘Bendy’ Grosvenor, the celebrated art historian and TV presenter, we’re going to be looking at interesting things that are happening in art during the great lockdown.
This week Bendy will be opining about the controversial museum practice of ‘deaccessioning’ and I’ll be asking why Gauguin was such a great painter of children.
We’ll also be sampling some of the art available on the internet and picking the pictures we would like to have hanging on our wall if we could have anything in the world….So join us as we raid the sweetie jar in ‘Waldy and Bendy’s Adventures in Art’.
