His paintings are probably not much worse, or much better, or any more banal, or now more tainted, than those of Adolph Hitler.
(I wonder if Godwin ever painted?)
Ireland (and elsewhere) had to deal with the revelations about child abuse by Catholic priests, that shook a nation that had placed faith in them. Now we have our own equivalent in England - the fall from grace of light entertainment celebrities...
...but in general, 'snot very funny really. I can't judge specifics without knowing anything about the evidence, but in general these judgements are believable I'd say. Despite what it seems, there must be lots of 70s stars who haven't been up in court - I don't think it's a free for all have a go at celebrities. (understandably the media coverage isn't focussed on the 'no news' about people who did nothing wrong.) the 'things were different then' argument has something to it - that it was easier to get away with. doesn't make it right, tho, nor any better for the victim.
as for the paintings, i fear Hitler's paintings may have more global ghoulish fascination value than Rolf's, well-known tho he is. Maybe the current price of any paintings by prominent disgraced priests would be a better guide.
They do appear to be going about airbrushing him out of history don't they?
My dad never liked RH. Said he came across all nicey nicey but looked "disengenuous". I should listen to my dad.
Chatting to my daughter she pointed out that it would be like me sleeping with one of her best mates when they were 16. Legal but a line no normal father would contemplate crossing. It's just plain wrong.
Joking aside no normal father would consider the girls he has watched grow up with his daughter as fair game would he?
It certainly would be weird - and creepy for the daughter. But weird and creepy stuff does happen.
Watching him walk out of court I could only think what a mistake it was to have that extra leg removed.
I wonder if they will paint over the Sistine Chapel?
KFC will shave Colonel Sanders on the logo .
I suspect that look will go the way of Hitlers.
I expect Rolf Harris will exercise his right to be forgotten by everybody
