From David Bowie to Raphael, virtual exhibition at the V&A

Published

The Victoria & Albert Museum in London has launched a series of online collections that you can visit for free with thousands and thousands of objects on virtual display.

There you will find a bit of everything for all tastes from glassware to ceramics, from Mary Quant’s dresses to Alexander McQueen’s. You can also visit collections of glasses, shoes, undergarments and much more besides the usual collections of Chinese, Arabic, Japanese and of course European art.

The beauty of these exhibits is that each item has a pretty detailed description and that for each exhibit there are other interactive and video resources. Great for spending a few hours or as a resource for studying.

Worked in many sectors including recruitment and marketing. Lucky to have found a soulmate who was then taken far too soon. No intention of moving on and definitely not moving to Thailand for the foreseeable future. Might move forward. Owned by a cat.

London, exhibition of royal portraits in Greenwich

Published

Postponed due to the pandemic, this exhibition is expected to open on May 28, 2021 and will continue until October 31. It will be  at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich and tickets cost £ 10. The Tudors to Windsors exhibition will feature works by some of Britain’s most prominent artists, from court painters Sir Peter Lely and Sir Godfrey Kneller to photographers Cecil Beaton and Annie Leibovitz and artists such as Andy Warhol. This major exhibition brings together works from the National Portrait Gallery, Greenwich Royal Museums and private collections.

Taken separately, these paintings are massive and impressive, but gathered together here the differences between the portraits become more pronounced. In fact, we pass from a majestic Victoria reign, an equally majestic and fat Henry VIII to the portrait of Prince Charles showing the heir to the throne with a sweater and riding boots. Obviously, it was only from the Tudor era that portrait painters had learned techniques to make portraits realistic. Of the previous kings and queens we have a vague idea of what they were really like.
