Derek Jarman at Poole

One of the nice things about a provincial museum is that you just never know what's around the next corner. So in Poole Museum at the weekend it was a delightful surprise to be confronted, out of the blue, with this huge 'artwork' by one of my heroes, Derek Jarman. This is, in fact, a decorated door from sometime in the 1960s which Jarman did for his school art teacher's house in Wimborne. The text is from Chaucer's "The Parliament of Fowles". A remarkable survival.
