Glorified wallpaper

     ‘I knew it!’ said the General. ‘A piece of glorified wallpaper! None of these modern bastards can paint. Not like Wollen — ever seen his “Last Stand of the Forty-fourth at Gandamack”? That’s painting, if you like. Not that it looked a dam’ bit like the real thing — I saw the real thing, back in ’42, so I should know. But it was a decentish picture.

Mr American, p.390, Pan Books, paperback edition 1982.
