British Folk Art

One of my favourites was British Folk Art at the Tate Britain, a small but perfectly formed show of genuine artists. People not making things primarily  for fame or fortune or acclaim, but making it for pleasure. Making it because they had to.

There were some spectacular, unselfconscious art works in this show. The outstanding one for me features on the poster - a chicken carved out of bones by a prisoner of war.  Such craftmanship too.
