Artful Fools

TMAGJames and I were ‘Artful Fools’ this morning and fled the house on this fine autumn day to visit the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.

What is it about art galleries that make you feel so good?  I have very positive feelings when I am in the midst of amazing art – maybe it is being surrounded by work that has been lovingly created by talented artisans, expressing their every thought through the stroke of a brush.  I also have the same feelings in bookshops – all those loving words printed on paper.

We were lucky to experience the most valuable painting the museum has ever exhibited, non other than the Angelica and the wounded Medoro c. 1860 by Eugène Delacroix.  This painting is only in Tasmania for a week as part of the Hobart Baroque Festival.

TMAGWe also visited the exhibition from the National Gallery of Australia Capital & Country – The Federation Years 1900 – 1914 and ogled over works by the likes of McCubben, Roberts and Piguenit.

Capital & CountryI especially loved The Sonnet c.1907 by George W Lambert.  James didn’t mind it either.  He he.  X
