Blimey O’Reilly; three galleries in one day and it looks as though we played tennis in the morning before setting off, if my diary scribble is to be believed.
First up: Miró, Calder, Giacometti, Braque at The Royal Academy. This exhibition might have been curated just for us; we both really like all four of these fellas.
Sophie Hicks Architects had something to do with it, so click here for their page about it.
We were onto this exhibition early; it ran from 4 October until the January; we were through the door 6 October.
Next up: Annie Leibovitz at the National Portrait Gallery. Click here for a link to the Gallery’s own excellent pages on this exhibition. Also up my/our street – I think she is a wonderful portrait photographer.
I think the Osbert Lancaster was a sweetener for me, as I love his cartoons. Not sure Janie was so interested. Perhaps she didn’t realise how keen I was on the other stuff we’d scheduled for that day. Anyway, we had time and off we went. Another exhibition that had just opened a few days before.

In short, this day was an embarrassment of riches in the exhibition stakes – we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
