Three Galleries In One Day, Royal Academy, National Portrait Gallery and Wallace Collection, 6 October 2008

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.

An excellent write up appeared on Culture24 – click here.

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.
