Continuing from my last moment of exhibition excitement, I recently discovered that the Tate is staging a Van Dyck Exhibition.
How gorgeous! Anyone that has visited the Royal Palaces in the UK must have seen his work, and I love the colours in them. Great for checking out all the famous people of the day too! A portrait of Princess Mary, sister of Charles II was recently returned to Hampton Court Palace too, after years in a private collection.
I would really, really love to get to this one, though sadly my exhibitions list grows longer by the day with no sign of it yet. Sob.
You can check out further information about Van Dyck and Britain at the Tate’s website. Plus, if you go and don’t tell me about it, I shall sulk.
