Angus Trumble - The Finger

Listen to Angus Trumble - The Finger

In discussion with David Hansen, returning Melburnian Angus Trumble - Senior Curator of Paintings for the Yale Centre for British Art - takes us through the finer points of his career and his professional preoccupations.

From his early failures as an aspirant artist to the origins of his most recent book The Finger: A Handbook, Trumble reveals how choosing the finger for his subject allowed him to, as Hansen put it, “graze widely in the fields of history”.
