My favourite artist... Richard Long. So I was delighted to finally find the time to visit his first major retrospective at the Tate gallery in London this weekend. At last, the right attention is being paid to someone I consider to be one of the great 20th century artists. I won't go into his art or the theories behind it here, as you ought to visit to discover it for yourself. As well as his photographic records of his work and relationships with landscape, he also produces text-based artworks which I adore from the memories, feelings and even smells they invoke to the marvellously modern font and colours he uses. Click here to read more about and see examples of his work. In the meantime, here's an image of his spectacular 'Line in the Himalayas', from 1975.
