I’ve just been to a party to celebrate the completion of the printed edition of the Public Catalogue Foundation. It was an amazing occasion including Fred Hohler, the original impresario who made it all happen, Andy Ellis, who has driven the machine behind Fred which has created the digital version, Tessa Jowell, who gave the speech when it was first launched at the National Gallery, David Mills and Robert Hiscox, who were amongst the first Trustees, and assorted friends, allies and especially loyal donors. Many people, including sometimes me, were sceptical that it would ever be finished. Now it has been done, all 96 published volumes, which have been the engine behind a systematic national inventory of oil paintings. Hurrah for Fred !
