Liverpool Quay

Princes Dock is very near the iconic Liver building, within sounds of that Ferry song and on that day, with great reflections.

Kedlestone Hall is an eighteenth century mansion set in extensive parkland. Just the spot for a wandering figure to explore….

Just caught the Antony Gormley exhibition at Kettles Yard.     The house is wonderful. It was once the home of Jim and Helen Ede. Jim was a curator at The Tate Gallery.  He left a carefully positioned collection of artworks alongside furniture, glass, ceramics and natural objects, with the aim of creating a harmonic whole.

“Thanks to his friendships with artists and other like-minded people, over the years he gathered a remarkable collection, including paintings by Ben and Winifred Nicholson, Alfred Wallis, Christopher Wood, David Jones and Joan Miro, as well as sculptures by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Constantin Brancusi, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.”

The Duveen Gallery at Tate Britain is a tough space for modern art. The Neoclassical Ionic columns and ornamental arches look good but could draw the eye away from the art on display. This exhibition is particularly successful though.

Beautiful Nymphaea to catch the eye in the Waterlily House at Kew.
