Autumn Exhibition: Rembrandt The Late Works

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited to the press preview of ‘Rembrandt: The Late Works’ at The National Gallery which opens to the public today.

Artful Accessories: Society6

On the best of days I feel like a teenager with my iPhone – my attention gripped to its sleek social networking apps and eager vibrating notifications, and until now I have managed to avoid becoming obsessed with adorning my ‘right arm’ with attractive accessories. However, this weekend I lost a few hours of my […] Read more…

Edvard Munch at The Tate

Earlier this month I went to see the Edvard Munch: The Modern Eye at the Tate. Few other modern artists are better known and yet less understood than Norwegian painter. He is one of the most famous expressionists in art and in popular culture – I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t know The […] Read more…
