Four Directors

I was sent a copy yesterday of the photograph taken of four directors of the National Portrait Gallery, taken at the annual Portrait Dinner last week (it seems like another era). It’s quite a funny foursome, referring back to Cecil Beaton’s 1967 photograph (NPG x12533) of Roy Strong, when he was still the young, scholarly Director, appointed to the post when he was only 31:-

    Dear Charles – whereas the once youthful Roy Strong now looks like Father Time the more recent incumbent reminds me of the comment of policemen always looking younger ! Best Edward
