The art critic Brian Sewell has died aged 84. He was a key figure in the founding of The Discerning Eye and was the only person who was a selector more than once (1990, 1997 and 2011). He was interviewed by us in 2010 and said “I was here right at the beginning of it ... and I'm sentimentally deeply attached to it because Michael Reynolds, whose inspired idea it was, was an old friend”. He will be greatly missed.
