The front door of the hollow tree where Toad was sleeping faced eastwards, so he was called early.

Before an invited audience in the Gala Hall, West Bromwich
by David Piper
Next to the art of water colours, the painting of portraits has long been the most characteristically English form of artistic expression. Even if in the past some of the painters were distinguished foreigners, their patrons were invariably English gentlemen whose portraits, together with those of their dogs, horses, children, country houses, and wives, have all contributed to the growth of this rich and unique artistic tradition.
The National Portrait Gallery in London, which houses many of the best or most interesting examples of English portrait painting, is now celebrating its first centenary. David Piper, Assistant Keeper of the Gallery, speaks about ' truth ' and ' untruth ' in portraits and asks what use the genuine portrait is to the historian.
