This is a joyous romp ‘behind the scenes’ in a (fictional) museum (clearly based on Tate Britain) called the ‘BRIT’! The Chairman of the Trustees is sponsoring a major exhibition, including his own Gainsborough painting, not exhibited for decades. Eagle-eyed Chief Curator, Jane Vaughan, spots an intriguing aspect of the painting which needs investigation and hilarious chaos ensues at the celebratory launch dinner. Written by the ex-Curator at the Dulwich Gallery this is an insider’s view of all sorts of mayhem and shenanigans, written with gentle sarcasm. They should make a film of it, it would be hilarious! (NB Hugh Bonneville as the Chairman, of course). A thoroughly enjoyable (not long) read.
