The Observer | Review | Art: Edouard the confessor

"Edouard Vuillard deserves a revival like no other French painter. He is the post-impressionist who slipped through the slats. A mild and modest bachelor whose tiny paintings, so subtle, and so beautifully mute, have an impact out of all proportion to their size," says Laura Cumming in this superb, critical review of an exhibition showing at the Royal Academy until April 18th. Cumming balances her praise of Vuillard's best work with a withering dismissal ["There are paintings I wish I'd never even seen"] of his later paintings. "The real decline is in the late portraits of plutocrats, wizened hostesses, society dentists with their drills...

Freddie Flintoff has to miss the Bangladesh Tests :-(
Finding this news on the CricInfo site I also discovered that Cricinfo, like Achuka, has had a redesign, and very good it looks too BUT it spawns popup ads, which I find infinitely more irritating that onpage ads. ACHUKA will never host popups unless they form part of a really ingenious publisher marketing campaign.

I enjoyed the recent cricket sequence in Garth Nix's Lirael. Anyone have a favourite children's books cricket episode they'd like to mention in the Comments slot?
