Van Gogh & Japan Challenge winner revealed
“In the past weeks, my team has received an impressive number of submissions from countries such as Wales, Indonesia, Poland and New Zealand. From lifelong professionals to budding creatives of all ages – our youngest entrant was just 15 months old! – I am delighted with the enthusiasm the challenge has received.”
At long last, it’s time to announce the prize winner for the #VanGoghJapanChallenge
“The card players study their cards as ardently as I imagine Cézanne was studying the canvas in front of him. It’s a scene of intense concentration and it’s partly that stillness and quiet that I like about it. Cézanne was something of a loner but always a keen observer – and that is clearly demonstrated here.”
This week’s #PaintingOfTheWeek focuses on another exquisite painting by one of Phil Grabsky’s favourite artists: Paul Cézanne.

This week’s #PaintingOfTheWeek focuses on ‘Saint Michael Triumphs over the Devil’ by Bartolome Bermejo.
“The past few months have been extremely busy and challenging for us in all sorts of ways but what I carry with me, what I choose to focus on, is the many extraordinary moments I’ve had in galleries, on shoots, in the edit suite and at screenings. So here are five recent moments that come to mind”
