The Easel is one of the world’s great newsletters, a model of taste and intelligence; and Andrew Bailey is one of the world’s most discerning editors. For professionals in the art world, The Easel is a welcome necessity. For anybody with an interest in the fine arts, The Easel is pure pleasure. I look forward to the arrival of The Easel in my inbox knowing that it will bring me the best current writing about the fine arts, whether curated from other publications or written specially for The Easel. I look forward particularly to Easel essays by Morgan Meis, whose combination of learning, judgment, playfulness and practical expertise make him my favourite critic anywhere.
