In retrospect ...


The sad case of the jailing of early music specialist Robert King for indecently assaulting young men featured here in 2007 several times. With King in prison the King's Consort has been directed by Matthew Halls. The trustees of the ensemble have now decided it is time to change its name, and have chosen Retrospect Ensemble. Hardly a title given by the gods.

That painting by Bojana Randall was, obviously, chosen because of its title - In retrospect.

But, disturbingly, the figure looks as though it has been hung. Which is not totally inappropriate, given the story.
