National Gallery director Nicholas Penny gave a talk last week in London on 'Old Masters in a new age', in which he discussed how the NG is approaching new media, and the lifting of the photography ban. Sadly, despite the speech being part of something called 'Social Media Week', there was no streaming or video of Penny's turn, which seems more than a little contradictory. I learn from a few quotes on Twitter, however, that Nicholas admitted to 'a life long habit of illicit art photography'. If anyone was there, and can tell us anything else the great man said, do let me know.
