Lillian Budd sat here

At the City Gallery Robert Leonard has just put up the exhibition McLeavey sat here looking at artists looking at the dealer Peter McLeavey. One of the works features an amended photograph of Lillian Budd reclining on McLeavey’s chaise longue after it had been painted by the artist. As it happens one of us was with Budd when the painting was done and took the chaise pic. Robert’s show seems a good moment for a side-bar to the chaise story so we have written a brief account of what went on that day along with further pics and ephemera. You can read it in a new section we have added to OTN studio called Stories.  It’s on the far right of the menu bar or use this link to go there direct.
