I've enjoyed tremendously to be away from home for a change. It had been well over a year since I last went away.
My first visit was to the V&A to see the Spider Silk.
The café at the V&A is worth a visit too:
The 2nd day it was to Tate Britain to see Picasso. We spent so much time there that we forgot to have lunch. It was so interesting to see the work of different artists together on show that had influenced each other. I have seen several Picasso exhibitions but I learned something new here. He designed for the theatre too, there were costumes on show.
The 3rd day was time for the Fashion and Textile Museum where there was an interesting exhibition on design.
Lots to see, here some impressions:
The 4th day was time to go to the Barbican Art Gallery to see Bauhaus, I had been invited by a friend to go and see this exhibition. Thanks Phyllis, it was great to see this together!
Again a lot of time was spent viewing and lunch was a bit later than usual. I could not appreciate all that was there. Some I found quite depressing but on the whole it was magic to see so much diverse work together and the textiles on show were stunning to see.
It was an inspiring visit and my next visit to London is already planned!
