This is the truth
April 12, 2007
Despite having “a new found faith in Christianity” (generally the kiss of death to any kind of creativity), Peter Howson, “Scotland’s greatest living painter” ™ has now managed to produce a triumvirate of highly pleasing paintings of my favourite celebrity idiot and orphan botherer, the graceless Madonna. As can be seen from the extract above, also featuring her equally boorish husband (referred to here by Howson as ‘Ogre’), he has succinctly and expertly captured the repulsive allure of the “golden couple”.

Features images of all paintings in the collection “Acheron and other works”.
Historical note: “Scotland’s greatest living painter” was actually born in England.
