I’ll subtitle this one as maybe I’ll have the time?
It’s well known here that I love photographs and photography in general so the first exhibition I’d like to see is Vanity Fair Portraits 1913-2008 (14 February-26 May) which is showing at the National Portrait Gallery, London. I’ve always thought that their photography was of particularly high quality, though I confess I’d probably enjoy the older shots more.
This ties in with my next desirable exhibition, Victorian Artists in Photographs: G.F. Watts and his World (7 January-13 April), which is showing at the Guildhall Art Gallery, London. I love Watts’ work, plus Victorian art in general, so this is one I’ll actually try very hard to see.
Finally, a place I’ve wanted to see for a while, and is also holding an exhibition is Jane Austen’s House, Chawton, Hampshire (1 March for 10 weeks), it will be showing a display of costumes from the 2008 BBC adaptation of Sense and Sensibility. As far as I can tell, they are already showing costumes from the film Becoming Jane also.
Did I mention it will soon be castle season? Yay! More places to go…
