894 – Art Galleries

I quite enjoyed the visit to the Newlands House Gallery, where we saw the Lee Miller photographic exhibition. It was fascinating. Now the quality of the pictures was extremley good, but there is no doubt that Lee had the subjects. Mainly Picasso.

During the lockdowns, I spent a fair bit of time reading one particular book Gomach’s the Story of Art, which covered the gamit of Art from cave drawings, through how Egyptians depicted people, and onward to recent times.

My interest in art began only recently, when we had a visit to Goodwood House, where many of the pictures related to the house or the family that had lived there over the centuries. It certinly helped that the guide we had gave us an excellent account. It was the first time, I think, that I had moved beyond ‘Oh, that’s an interesting picture” or “I’m bored”.

Then there was Grayson Perry’s art club, where he brought an excellent TV show to the screen. I want to understand art and appreciate the story (perhaps I should say the narrative) behind the art. I want to visit a proper gallery and have a good look around.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
