_ APPEL APPEAL
Chessel Gallery, Moray House Most at this show was selected tor Edinburgh trom the exhibition that closed earlier this month in Dublin, coming originally trom the Arnoliini in Bristol. There are tour domestically-scaled acrylics that give a taste of the massive oils seen in Bristol, but don't expect acres at canvas and gallons ot paint here. The core at this selection is formed by
a group at ink drawings only 9in by 7in. The drawings were commissioned as illustrations tor Appel’s own poetry which is included in the show—and which, incidentally, appears i .n at least one anothology of modern Dutch poetry. Together they torm an idiosyncratic commentary on urban living, trom Amsterdam to New York where Appet has lived tortwenty years. The drawings range from dark fluency to lightwhimsy, and itthe scale otthe work is diminished, Appel‘s exuberance is not. The show is a welcome opportunity to see a lesser-known aspect of his work. (P.K.)
not only possessed an inventive mind but also shone at the dinner table and in the drawing room. Nottingham University have organised this exhibition (with sponsorship from Christie‘s) which collects the portraits ofsuch well-known 18th century figures as the actor David Garrick and poet Alexander Pope as painted by Hogarth and Kneller respectively. Few ofthe pictures have been exhibited before in Scotland. See panel.
