As a way to take a little break between lesson planning, I love to have a browse through the wonderful BBC site Your Paintings. As well as being a great relaxation technique, it’s a fantastic way to discover new artists I admire. I had never heard of Wilfred Gabriel de Glehn before (I do admit to being very ignorant about art), but after seeing the gorgeous painting above I’m keen to learn more. Apparently, he and his wife were close friends of another favourite artist of mine – John Singer Sargent. – Miranda
