An overview of what Freemasonry is as an organization combined with various exterior and interior features of the United Grand Lodge of England, the ceremonial and administrative headquarters of Freemasonry in England and Wales. Otherwise known as The Freemasons’ Hall, the building possesses several Art Deco features.

An extraordinary story of Paul Gauguin and part the magical vision he conjured of Breton, Tahitian and Marquesan life. Fired by his relentless pursuit of the authentic, he created an image of a far away world where everything was innocent and fragrant – Noa Noa. Interwoven into this is the story of my own role in the quest to authenticate two supposed “Gauguin” paintings, together worth over 11million pounds. A salutary tale of the contemporary art market and role that the innocent art historian plays within what is a very wonderful and murky business.
