An intriguing murder mystery exploring the desire of the artist to remain elusive and anonymous behind work which is heavily codified and seemingly impenetrable. When a brilliant young art historian flies in the face of the received wisdom regarding the work of the reclusive Anderson Perrine, the artist feels a distinct invasion of his privacy. He sets about laying a series of false trails but her pursuit of him is unrelenting and he is obliged to take radically evasive action.
Starring Hattie Morahan, Joss Ackland, Miche Doherty, Mark Lawson and Robin Read, with Aine McCartney, BJ Hogg and Mark Lambert. Written by Mark Lawson. Directed by Eoin O'Callaghan and produced in Belfast for Radio 4.
Very cheap work here, an illiterate dustbin man could have put this article together. We expect deeper more trusting and overwhelming critic from an art critic and not this obvious (from the very start) beans and chips material. Of all the art works that Lawson has the privilege to closely study and rip apart and this is all he can come up with? I rest my case.
