NEVER TRUST a thin cook, goes the saying. But what about a clean paint-maker? For Francesca Wezel – who calls herself a ‘chef of paint’ – is suspiciously spotless. Her nails are scrubbed, her jersey pristine. Luckily, it seems I’ve just caught her at a good moment. ‘No, no! We get dirty… If you go to a paint shop and everybody’s clean, then they’re not making paint,’ she says, pointing to an apron behind her, reassuringly smeared and spattered. As if on cue, Camillo Boschetti, her second-in-command at Francesca’s Paints, appears from the mixing room of their Battersea studio, flecked from head to foot. The pair are both Italian (Francesca from Milan, Camillo from Udine, near Venice), but they met in London. They’ve been working together for all but two of…

raj against the machine

RAJ AGAINST THE MACHINE MASTER STORYTELLER of rattling yarns and ‘poet of Empire’, Rudyard Kipling was one of the best-loved of all English writers until the taint of colonialism dimmed his reputation. But his attitude to the Raj was never as simple and celebratory as his detractors would have it, not least because his work was inspired by an extraordinary knowledge of India and a deep love and subtle understanding of its people. In this, he followed his father, a consummate ‘old India hand’ and the man who did more to preserve and promote the traditional arts and crafts of India than almost any other of that vast army of colonial administrators who ran the subcontinent. John Lockwood Kipling is now little remembered, so an exhibition at the V&A celebrating his…

FAUSTO AND FELICE NICCOLINI: HOUSES AND MONUMENTS OF POMPEII (by Valentin Schuckel and Sebastian Schutze; Taschen, rrp £135) The reputation of ancient Pompeii owes a lot to the Niccolini brothers, Fausto and Felice, who over 40 years in the late 19th century published in marvellously detailed copies, many in full colour, almost everything that had been found in the buried town. It cannot have been a great commercial success. The Niccolini had come a little too late for the earlier enthusiasm among the European elite for Pompeian-style wall decoration, and their vast, unwieldy illustrated house-by-house survey of the place belonged on a library table, rather than one for coffee. It first came out in more than a hundred separate pamphlets, later bound up into four immense volumes more than two…
