'Simon Casson went to the National Gallery, aged ten, and stood in front of a Titian. He hasn’t been the same since. That formative experience in his childhood – he went on to study at the RA and St Martin’s, and become an internationally renowned painter, who is collected by the likes of King Charles and Charles Saatchi – is recalled every time that he approaches a painting'.
