The Krasnals. Whielki Krasnal. "Charles Saatchi / from the series Inglorious Basterds and Big Collectors / and Jewish Revenge by Quentin Tarantino". 2009. Oil on canvas. 120 x 160 cm

Here’s hoping that things can be straightened out sharpish but without enabling unscrutinised changes to public arts policy to fly under the radar.
