Saul Reichlin

The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies


Saul delivered the famous lecture on art, given in Oxford, Cambridge and London, by the Edwardian painter, James McNeill Whistler. This was a scathing argument against the criticism and teaching of "Art" and mocked every tenet dear to the Victorians.

Mr Whistler's Ten O'Clock contained many acerbic references to the "dilettante", Oscar Wilde, who famously stole so many of Whistler's "bons mots" and made them his own. The show resulted in an invitation from The Tate Gallery to do the show there, as "visiting lecturer".
