One painting, it has to be said, was the star of the show. Night View by Ashley Hold. This attracted so much attention. People were coming back two or three times to have another look, bringing their friends and having lively discussions about what they could see in the painting, gasps of delight as they spotted yet another nuance and huge admiration for the skill involved in such a complex work of art.
We were delighted to be able to live with this painting for three days and found that it stayed with us long after the show closed each night, informing the way that we looked at, through and beyond the reflections in night windows, creating a still and quiet contemplation of the human condition. It is a rare thing to be the conduit of such a work of art, and it feels like an honour.
