Tate Britain...

went to see the Artist & Empire show. Very good deal, combining my Art Pass and OAP discount. I'd feared it was going to be rather dry and worthy, but it was quite interesting, as it turned out. I especially liked the Nigerian carver's portrait of the Prince of Wales in 1920. He's managed to capture  the sappy feebleness that I've always found in 'David''s visage beautifully. It's always seemed extremely odd to me that he was considered to be quite handsome and charismatic in his heyday. Was it just media flattery of royalty, or did people actually think that?

Didn't exercise outdoors due to rain, but didn't accomplish much, needless to say. I would so love to have some energy!
