Glasgow-based artist France-Lise McGurn is the latest guest on DRAF Broadcasts: Podcast, talking about Art Deco painter Tamara de Lempicka’s drawing Sur La Plage, made circa 1926 when de Lempicka lived in Paris and was a prominent member of the art scene between the two world wars. This work from the David Roberts Collection becomes the basis for a conversation that touches on the female nude, Madonna videos and cigarette packets.

It is the first in a new series of conversations as part of Broadcasts: Podcast, which will open up the David Roberts Collection through artists' encounters with works in the collection. Artists featured in the collection have been invited to choose a work other than their own as the starting point of a conversation about when they first came across the artist and their work, how this has been an influence on their practice, and the impact collecting has on them.
