Summer at la Barrière, nr Caylus, France

For fifteen days, Milan drew in pen and ink,

and seven of us cooked and ate and drank,

and laughed and told stories and basked in the sun,

and gazed at the beauty of the garden and of the old building,

and of the valley of la Bonnette beyond.

On the sixteenth day, Milan added colour to one of his pictures.

‘The History Men’ in Belfast

Milan’s portrait, The History Men, which was selected for the 2015 BP Portrait Award exhibition, is now at The Ulster Museum, Belfast, until 12 June, 2016. Having been on tour for a year in London, Scotland and Belfast, in July it will finally return to Lancaster, and into the possession of Kay Schiller, the ‘history man’ on the right of the picture.
