Set Build The Tempest RSC/LAT

Visited Stratford today to see the progress of the set. It is all coming together as I hoped thanks to the skills of the RSC workshop. Show starts rehearsals in London in just over a week.

Norman Rockwell Dulwich Picture Gallery

1st trip to Dulwich Picture Gallery today. The collection of paintings is incredibly varied and I particularly enjoyed the Norman Rockwell retrospective.
This one is his cover for the Evening Post on April 1st. I think there are over 50 April fools in the painting.
The game of Bridge was a favourite too.

Gauguin Tate Modern

Just managed to make the Gauguin exhibition in its final week. The collection is really overwhelming and charts his whole life. He was a master of colour, the yellow and flecks of red in this one are sublime.
