In the Gilbert Bayes Sculpture Gallery (new to me), I admired the recumbent terracotta of Dr. Hugh Chamberlen by Scheemakers (c.1728):-
And the astonishing self-portrait of the Burslem potter, Enoch Wood:-
An ivory of the Countess of Sunderland by David Le Marchand:-
I had actually come to the V&A to see the reproductions of medieval tombstones in the Qala Quraysh fortress in Dagestan, which are displayed in the so-called Prince Consort Gallery, till recently the textile store room:-
One thought on “V&A (2)”
Thank you. I’d never seen the portrait of Enoch Wood before.
