Spot the difference!!
My great grand-daughter is now into her second year at “big school”. She will be six in a few weeks' time. The other day, she came home after an art lesson, and told her mother excitedly that they had learned all about Van Gogh – about his self-mutilation, his friendship with Cézanne, the way his moods influenced his choice of colours, and so on – and they had all been invited to choose one of his paintings to copy. This is at a normal Church of England Primary School, not some sort of private establishment for precocious or abnormally gifted children. Crickey! I doubt whether I had even heard of Van Gogh until I was in my Forties!
