These catalogues are preceded by two chapters in which the author fleshes out all this material with a very detailed chronological account of the formation and development of the collection of ancient sculpture that Cesare, despite the disadvantages of poor health (he was overweight and died at 40) and scant financial resources (he occasionally had to pawn the family silver to pay for a choice piece) was able to create.

To young Hirst fans eager to lap up a brand-new Britpop soundtrack of unreleased material by Pulp and Blur, and to see cult-comic Eddie Izzard as a psychiatrist in a direct tribute to Hitchcock's Spellbound, it was scant comfort that they were permitted to scrutinize the living genitals on the five actors who were part of Greenaway's room full of sound effects and fury; or that they could view ad infinitum the snapping alien ("18" certificate on film and video) springing gorily from John Hurt's stomach, part of Scott's four-monitor mishmash of movie clips and production notes.
