Borchard wrote 'Why cannot we have paintings, also, like Goya’s? Why not the ‘cri de coeur’, also, in what is being painted? This I find in Anthony Whishaw...’ This reference to Goya is apt, Whishaw developing a lifelong love for Spain. He was joyfully overwhelmed first seeing Goya’s ‘Black Paintings’ years ago. As a teenager he reacted with fury to reproductions of Picasso’s work but went on to ‘develop an enormous rapport with Cubist work’.
