Taking the bull by the horns

In the piece below you'll find an interview with Douglas Gordon, a Scottish artist with a huge international reputation. Douglas is as nice a guy as you could ever meet, but the world's least convincing Partick Thistle fan. The article appears today in the Scottish edition of Times.

Eighteen months ago, Douglas mounted a huge retrospective of his work in Edinburgh. For another interview with him, which appeared at that time in the Sunday Times, just click here: The beautiful game

The image immediately below is of Philippe Parreno (left) and Douglas Gordon, the co-directors of Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait. In the article below are pictures of José Tomás, caught at a bad moment on his return to bullfightiing in Barcelona, Zinedine Zidane, and an engraving of Martin Luther, by Lucas Cranach the elder.
