At London's Courtauld Gallery (80)

I like the story around this picture by Richard Long 
Very appreciative of how well served we London residents are in terms of leisure and cultural activity opportunities - yesterday after seeing some friends who will show in BEAT 2017 (Ealing's Art Fair mentioned yesterday) I went and had some time at the Courtauld Gallery - part of Somerset House.


There are some marvellous works on show, a lot of Seurat's paintings and The Bar at The Folies Bergere  by Edouard Manet  always calls attention  but what was a bit of a surprise was Richard Long's influential and relatively modern   A Line Made by Walking (1967)


So many galleries are incredibly crowded and taking time to enjoy savour and the experience is not always easy but The Courtauld on a wet Monday (when you can get reduced entrance too) worked really well.

So much in Somerset House
A tasteful and cultured  venue
