Here are some of the exhibits from the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition which I enjoyed and if you’ll excuse the pun, from my perspective.
I rather like the way people lean when looking at pictures as if to look around them, or perhaps as in this case as he did not lean, the image was talking to him into those lovely big ears.
This is two pieces, a sculpture and a painting behind. Someone being clever here with the curating. Clever curator!
And then last of the series I took is this one, it must have been done pre Brexit and speaks volumes.
I suspect that this exhibition is over now, but yesterday I took in the Picasso Portraits one at the National Portrait Gallery, not allowed to photograph anything there which was a shame. For my money I enjoyed the Summer Exhibition much more and thought the National Portrait people had put on a poor show, dull rooms and home movies of the man himself did nothing for me. Not all the drawings were that good either. Picasso has so much outstanding work, some in here but not all.You should be told, it’s expensive to visit.
