Friday 29 March: Dorothea Tanning at the Tate Modern

Fascinating exhibition, Dorothea Tanning works are really beautiful and changing throughout the decades. My fav were her more realistic surrealist early pieces but the colours in her more abstract works were so beautiful too, less into her 3D but loved the creepy room. Fascinating artist I knew little about. Loved her humour too and her dog inclusion ;) the Tate was heaving with people for one of their late event but strangely not at this exhibition. Followed by a few drinks in the pub

Tuesday 26 March: Mervyn Peake, an Exhibition of Certain Rare Dreams Private View at The Last Tuesday Society & The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities.

That night we went to see the opening of the Mervyn Peake exhibition, some very lovely artworks and illustration. We got there at the start before it got too busy and they had removed the tables so it worked much better. Loved some of his Alice and Witchy ones. Always fab to be in that fantastic place of weird and wonderful artefacts. Always spot something new there

Aga Khan centre & Library [Mar. 28th, 2019|08:18 pm]

Monday 25 March: Aga Khan centre & Library

As part of special librray tours for librarians I went to visit this place that afternoon. What a stunning new building housing the collection from the Institute of Ismaili Studies and the Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations. The whole building uses geometrical patterns and uses light so well. For something so modern and in the middle of building site that is Kings Cross currently it is very peaceful. Most tranquil and pretty are all their gardens and terraces that echoes Islamic architectural and garden styles. They even prepared lots of beautiful rare books for us to see . Very fascinating visit

Sunday 24 March: Pergola Gardens Hampstead Health, Spaniard In and Highgate

being such a sunny day we took Dave and Cheryl to the Pergola gardens , we then had lunch in the beautiful beer gardenb of the Spaniard inn and our guests decided to redo Highgate cemetery tour, tempted but having done it so many times we opted for park in the sunshine and a little craft fair in Lauderdale house. A lovely relax sunday and feel so good to have seen sunshine and everyone playing outside...

Saturday 23 March: Red House

next we went to visit the Red House, my second visit to the Red house, last time we went they had not yet discovered the Burne Jones murals so that was lovely to see. i love the building but it is quite an empty shell, especially after Standen that is still full of beautiful Art & Craft decors and furnitures. Still a good day of William Morris goodness.

Saturday 23 March:Fairytales, Fantasies and Nightmares – the illustrated world of Arthur Rackham

The Rackham Exhibition was very small, but a very nice way to end the house visit. Not worth going there for the exhibition alone but if interested in Art & Craft then definately. It was just a few cabinets exhibition their own library collection but always lovely to see them in the flesh.
