Visit to Philip Mould's Gallery

A week to go until The Wigtown Book Festival and if you haven't got tickets yet I highly recommend it: it is absolutely brilliant.

Last year Jill and I bid in the Wigtown Book Festival Fight For Sight charity auction for a visit to Philip Mould's gallery in London.

We went down to London at the beginning of the summer and had a wonderful time in Philip's gallery. The collection of portraits was quite awe inspiring. Jill and I both loved the two van Dyke self portraits, they were the highlight of our visit. Philip was a fantastic host and even showed us some of the paintings that will be featured in the new series of Fake or Fortune in early 2014. Although he didn't tell us what the outcome of all their investigations was!

Here are a couple of photos from our visit:

An amazing self portrait by Anthony van Dyke with the most beautiful frame.
