I've a lot of admiration for people who are using these peculiar times to do creative things --- even more so when they share some of the results to inform or entertain the rest of us. And there's a lot of that going on at YouTube, as well as on other platforms.
One of my favorites is a series of brief videos launched last week by Philip Mould, British art dealer, writer and broadcaster, titled "Art in Isolation."
Mould is a London-based art dealer with a broad fan base in large part because of his longtime role as an evaluator for the British version of Antiques Roadshow and as the principal in an art-related British television series entitled Fake or Fortune.
He is spending the weeks of isolation at his family's small 17th century Oxfordshire manor house, Duck End, with wife, Catherine, son, Oliver, and family dog, Cedric. Oliver is handling the production end of things.
Perhaps you really do need to be interested in art to enjoy the series which consists largely of Mould moving from room to room in the house and a nearby barn, converted into a dining room, and talking about the artwork from his personal collection that hangs (or is otherwise displayed) there.
But Mould also is a plantsman and plant conservationist, so we also get tantalizing glimpses of the gardens that surround the house. Then there are the interior details of beautifully restored vintage buildings.
Here's the opening program in the series. To find the others, you may follow Mr. Mould on Twitter by going here or go to the Philip Mould & Co. YouTube site, which is here.
