Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know ? Grayson Perry's Reith lectures on BBC Radio 4

During the day while I am painting I listen to the radio and today heard the third of Grayson Perry's four Reith lectures. Popular rather than controversial his assessment of the 'State of Art' from a British perspective in the 21st century is both funny, clever and unpretentious and his sense of dress for a white middle aged man is, like his pottery, challenging, memorable and inspirational.  He seems to have matured from a whimsical doll-like Alice in Wonderland into a full blown establishment artistic matriarch, but what he says is much more interesting than what he wears.
