I had a lovely trip to London last weekend for a friends birthday and also to go and see the Edvard Munch exhibition at the Tate Modern. The exhibition was great! I love his work, and there were so many pieces which i’d never seen before. Unfortunately the Scream wasn’t there, which is annoying as it probably one of his only paintings i’ve still never seen!
Here are some photos of the trip:
Marguerite Kelsey by Meredith Frampton
This painting absolutely mesmerised me when I saw it. It was so, so detailed and the woman looks so serene in it!
The Entire City by Max Ernst
I loved this one too, again i’m a big fan of Max Ernst’s paintings. They are so weird and wonderful!
I can’t remember what this one was called, but I think it was by an Isreali guy…It looked a bit like Guernica by Picasso, and this guy was sat watching it (or rather, looking at it) for ages.
Unfortunately you’re not allowed to take photos inside the paid exhibitions, which meant I had to settle for a lowly postcard of one of Munch’s paintings from the shop.
Afterwards we went to the rooftop bar at the Tate (the advantages of having a members card!) and it was such a beautiful evening! Made the gin and tonic taste even better.
And of course, the obligatory photo of the London skyline as seen from the other side of the Tate. It really was a beautiful day, and St. Pauls looked stunning!
So, the skirt project is going not quite according to plan…had to botch it slightly, but should be able to post the finished product some time this week!
