Brian Sewell

Last week saw the sad passing of Brian Sewell, the controversial and entertaining art critic.This portrait is from a session six years ago for a television documentary detailing his time spent with Salvador Dali. We had a chat about what constituted art and i asked him if the great photographer Henri Cartier Bresson was an artist. To which he repied " if he considered himself to be an artist at the time of taking the photograph then it was indeed art "
