John Cuneo on Richard Thompson

"I’ve also been looking closely at the aforementioned book of Goya’s etchings, Ronald Searle’s remarkable drawings in The Second Coming of Toulouse-Lautrec, and The Art of Richard Thompson. For me, Thompson’s work has the capacity to conjure both inspiration and despair. I take it in small portions, no more than three or four pages at a time so as not to give up hope entirely."
