I don't think Sparnaay's work is supposed to be appetising, though it's certainly a feast for the eyes. :)

Revolution: Russian Art 1917–1932
11 February — 17 April 2017
Royal Academy of Arts

One hundred years on from the Russian Revolution, this powerful exhibition explores one of the most momentous periods in modern world history through the lens of its groundbreaking art.

Renowned artists including Kandinsky, Malevich, Chagall and Rodchenko were among those to live through the fateful events of 1917, which ended centuries of Tsarist rule and shook Russian society to its foundations.

Saturday – Thursday 10am – 6pm
Friday 10am – 10pm

Main Galleries, Burlington House

£18 (without donation £16). Concessions available. Friends of the RA, and under 16s when with a fee-paying adult, go free.

‘He found a style as a painter that matched who he was as a man’: tributes to Howard Hodgkin.

"The great British painter Sir Howard Hodgkin – abstract artist, portraitist, colourist extraordinaire – died this week at the age of 84. Five admirers remember him."

I prefer the old school ninja turtles. Never cared much for impressionists or modernists or what ever else came out of France in the late 19th early 20th century.
A rational skeptic should be able to discuss and debate anything, no matter how much they may personally disagree with that point of view. Discussing a subject is not agreeing with it, but understanding it.
