I am curious – was anyone visiting the Ceramics Galleries? they are amongst the finest anywhere with of course a world class collection, a museum in itself, but the challenge as with the BM, Tate Britain, etc is to get people out of what seem to be the main galleries and around the museum, and somehow the 6th floor is beyond the ken of most visitors.
Yes, it was very busy on the ground floor, less so each floor up, and pretty empty in Ceramics – or Keramik as John Mallet always called it. Charles
Obvious I am sure, but doesn’t the Napoleon bust look very like George Osborne…?
It’s the haircut. Charles
