Sir Roy Strong (2)

I sadly missed the party which was held to celebrate Roy Strong’s 80th. birthday, so hadn’t seen (except in small-scale digital reproduction) the extraordinary set of images which John Swannell has made of him over the last five years in the style of Henry VIII, Nicholas Hilliard, the Duke of Urbino (a particularly good one), Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Magritte et. al.   The odd thing is how convincing they are – the fictionalisation of ego.
