The Spectator's interest in architecture continues, currently with the never-lessthan-certain opinions of Paul Johnson. He condemns the British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery and Tate Modern as horrors, but praises the Wallace Collection and the Dulwich Picture Gallery for the new work there. It comes as no surprise to Johnson that the architect for the latter two was the same (Rick Mather, though he gets no name check). But Johnson is also keen on what has happened at Somerset House. He could not bring himself to mention that the architect (Jeremy Dixon.Edward Jones) is the creator of the NPG.
