The closure of museums

I feel a terrible and slightly desperate sense of sadness that museums have been put in Tier 3, only allowed to open at the earliest on May 17th. Just when it felt there were gleams of hope and the opportunity for cultural nourishment, when I have been receiving information about the long awaited reopening of Charleston and was looking forward to Durer’s Journeys at the National Gallery, it turns out that we can go to the gym and shopping, but not to the stately halls of the National Gallery, where everyone is so disciplined in the art of social distancing. It feels illogical as well as sad, but I presume is a victim of the decision to phase re-opening and sport is regarded as more important than the starvation of art.
