« More Drawing in the British Museum
I like to read this all, Sharon, and I am thinking about it. Its true, the crowd in front of Mona Lisa is enormous. Just a pity nowbody can see it really as it is, without glass and nearer. You forgot to mention the selfies in front of Venus of Milo – we looked mainly at her rear which is also beautiful – and the selfie in front of Uluru in Australia, ha, smile, smile.
HI Anneliese I nearly did mention the Venus de Milo but thought it would turn the post into a bit of rant. I notice this selfie culture in European galleries as in Australia they do not allow photography which is nice in some ways but not so good in others as I love taking photos of painting I have seen simply to look back on the day.
…and I want to add that your handwriting looks beautiful.
Potographing in some museums is indeed allowed – but it is strictly forbidden to use flashes – old paintings could suffer.
