Part 19 (tape 11 side A): Feelings about being asked to become Chairman of NLSC. Wife and NG don’t interfere with each other’s public roles, e.g. Chairmanships. Details NG’s retirement from National Art Collections Fund. NACF centenary. NG’s successor, Brian Allen. Time NG gave to NACF. Ways in which NG’s taste was changed by NACF. Film and screen-based art. Knew Jay Jopling as undergraduate with NG’s daughter; went to his first show in Berkeley Square. Thinks Damien Hirst is a brand rather than an artist. Contemporary artists whom NG thinks will stand the test of time, including Jake and Dinos Chapman. NACF handled a number of donations from Charles Saatchi to museums and galleries.
