/ Value of art by Rolf Harris
Bit of a shame really as he did some very worthwhile paintings.
If you own anything by him will you be getting rid of it?
I'm curious as we have this http://tinyurl.com/nqjgvd8 in our living room but will be taking it down.
If it's true though then he can get what he deserves...
Either the link is broken or Google images have already taken Harris's pictures down.
Personally, if I like a picture I like a picture, rather than particularly following the artist who painted it. I don't think I'd take down a picture I really liked, but I can understand people wanting to disassociate themselves from his art if the allegations are true.
Hitler's art fetches quite good money, and if you can disassociate yourself from the individual it is quite good.

I'll be taking down my Caravaggio and my Lowry collection (amongst others). My Lewis Carroll and Laurie Lee book collections are long gone....

The thing about Hitlers art is that it's not particularly good and this contributed to him turning his had to world domination.
This I thought would convey that I know he hasn't be convicted/prosecuted merely charged. I still think that the value will drop, as they say "mud sticks".
He painted the Queen, we should remove her from the throne as a precaution...
He painted the Queen
What colour did he paint her?

That reminds me of Phil Bagnall/ Phil the Hippie (anyone remember him?) - "It must take a lot of paint to paint mountains".

Magnolia with a British Racing Green chimney breast.
Do we have to have topics about perverts on here.
I don't read the papers or watch the news, and the last thing I want to see on a climbing website is negative/sick topics.
Obviously I don't have to read them, but it gets hard when pretty much every other post is about perverts, murders and other bullshit
One of the sneakiest and quickest Goodwin's Law entries I've seen. Well done.
It depends on the verdict. Do you know what it is yet?
I bet you wouldn't say the same about the Syrian government so called use of gas.
Rolf is badder than a thousand Syrian assassins.

you said it chasm
Pontius the chap says you're wrong.
