“An American painter has won the hearts of the Household Cavalry.
Sam Westmacott reports

SPYING through the curtains is usually associated with little old ladies over-interested in their neighbours.  This time, however, the neighbour is the Household Cavairy and the spy is an American artist Lt-Col Toby Browne, Commanding Officer of the Household Cavalry, had no idea that Lynne Murray Gleason was secretly observing and painting his regiment from her balcony window overlooking Hyde Park.”

Exhibitions from tradition to timelessness…

“The very end of July saw a most interesting exibition of the recent paintings of Henry Wo Yue-Kee at the City Hall High Block Exhibition Gallery.

As a child, Lynne admits: “The only thing I drew then was horses. I drew them obsessively.”
