Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE
    The Lucio's Collection, Sydney

    Galletto has always collected art, always been kind to artists. The legacies of this mutual admiration are the handsome Blackmans, Storriers and Olsens decorating the dining rooms of his restaurant.

    Restaurant is perhaps an inadequate word, for Lucio's is a kind of salon, or at least the closest thing we have to one in Sydney. One goes there in the certain knowledge that the atmosphere will be warm, the company congenial, that there will be a number of agreeable people with whom to exchange pleasantries or ideas. Beyond its salonesque attributes is its status as an institution. Everyone knows Lucio's. Everyone loves Lucio's. The benign Lord McAlpine sets up headquarters here when he visits Sydney, doing three lunches and three dinners during a three-day visit. Why bother moving when it is so pleasant to be here?

    Hither are drawn tycoons, the shakers and the shaken, budding plutocrats, fading stars. But most of all artists. Any good salon needs a peppering of creative types and they have always seemed attached to this spot.

    It is a happy place.
