Old Maggs has been an establishment luvvie for as long as I can remember. God knows why. Back in the days of Peter Fuller’s posh-zine Modern Painters (80s) she was repeatedly granted respectable attention – before that the colour supps. At the time I assumed it was just bad taste but I now think it was the craving for mediocrity or conservatism –
