|Come on in|
Friday was a busy day for me as well as a meeting at The Museum of Brands, Packaging & Advertising (to find about volunteering there) I made a quick visit to The National Gallery and a slightly longer one to Tate Modern.
The good news is the the museum is able to use some help and I'll undergo induction fairly soon, also as it's quite a small museum the work looks varied and thankfully not too much bureaucracy.
The sad news is that it's situated not too far from the tragedy of Grenfell Tower and I saw the building when I was there.
[Odd the way the Engineering expert's view was put out for 'consultation' almost immediately by the new Minister for Housing James Brokenshire.]

So onto the National Gallery where the Tourists and street performers were much in evidence ..
I was much taken by the work of Francesco del Cossa (1435 -1477) a painting of the much travelled Saint Vincent Ferrer a Spanish Dominican preacher.

After this I saw Debbie at Tate Modern so we could look at The Seagram Murals that were the subject of Red (which we saw the previous week).

On returning to St Paul's Underground station it was good to see Ben Wilson working his Chewing Gum art (again) - this time in fine weather and a new twist on the 'live' statues - this guy caught mid dash..
