New kids on the block

  • Comment

New faces are sitting at the St James's Square round table of the Royal Fine Art Commission, following appointments at the end of last year. Graham Morrison and Sir Colin Stansfield Smith have joined the Commission in place of Quinlan Terry, who served for three years, and Sir Philip Dowson, commissioner since 1971. The new commissioners on the block will join fellow architects Sir Michael Hopkins, Ted Cullinan and Ian Ritchie among the 18 great and good (Hal Moggridge is landscape architect member). Both new recruits are on fixed-term 'appointments' of five years and get only minimal expenses. The true reward is, of course, the benefit of the wit and wisdom of chairman Lord St John of Fawsley.
