A night of Lucian Freud and Banksy

 After weeks of there not being anything good to watch on TV,  Saturday night I sat down and watched two excellent programmes. Firstly BBC 2 showed a programme called 'Imagine sitting for Lucian Freud', a documentary about Lucian Freud the British portrait artist who recently passed away and the people who sat for his paintings. After this Channel 4 showed 'Exit through the Gift Shop' a documentary made by British street artist Banksy about the fickle world of Art. 
If you get chance you must watch these fascinating programmes!
