Talk by Anthony Blunt
Diderot invented the art of reviewing exhibitions of painting, and from 1759 to 1781 he regularly wrote to his friend Grimm accounts of the Salon in which he set forth his ideas on painting and a number of other subjects not always very closely related to it. Anthony Blunt imagines what Diderot's reactions might be if he were to visit the exhibition of French landscape at Burlington House.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
