Four watercolours by Emil Nolde, an expressionist painter and a later member of Die Brücke (The Bridge) group of artists. Bit of a Nazi too, unfortunately, though the Nazis banned him from painting when they came to power.

Boston City Hall

I like this, though feel I really shouldn't. It's an example of the architectural style known as Brutalism. I think it works here because it is isolated and so has its own space, so it's like looking at an Aztec carving or Benin sculpture, and it is supported by the style of the surrounding buildings. This sort of architecture is a disaster though when stuck in an old, jostling and rainy city like London (think of the Barbican Centre or the Hayward Gallery).

some of the work I do is involved with the ACI (concrete) so I get to peruse lots of brutalism material, I absolutely love it - it's truly ugly-beautiful
