Anne Madden and Louis le Brocquy celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary today (and also on april 8th!). There's a beautiful picture of them here. I spent some time today looking at le Brocquy's tapestries and marvelling at how well he (a non weaver) understands how to design for the medium. I wonder how much is down to his skill and how much to the weaver's. I suppose it must be an equal balance.
