Great to see the large cushion with Lady Munnings on Exmoor sitting by the original (which never fails to disappoint) @munnings_art_museum earlier this week.  The Munnings ‘Behind the lines’ paintings currently at @nam_london moves to Castle House on the 23rd March.  A perfect time to visit this collection along with viewing the #munnings classics.  #sportingart #equestrian #britishmuseum #sidesaddle #britishmade #countryinteriors #equinedecor #exmoor #heritagestyle @bhorsetrials

One of The greatest achievement of The nabatean people was their ability to consume and adopt new foreign ideas🌍 in which are not theirs.but in style they made them theirs.an example of that The idea of theater🎭.an influence from The Hellenistic civilization🏛 but instead of building one like Ancient Greeks have done,they simply carved one from The mountain of rock ⛰️with their own native style in mind.👨‍🎨 #petra #throwbacktuesday #ancientcity #ancienthistory #visitjordan #shareyourjordan #archeology #historybuff #ancientart #ancientarchitecture #wadirum #Utah #britishmuseum #lost_world_treasures

|DAY 6 - Black & White Photo Challenge ⠀

🎞 Following an amusing memory I have that, as a little girl I thought everything in the 'olden days' was black & white, I am sharing a photo each day which I've taken of historical place across the UK in the past year, presented in Black & White. ⠀⠀

On occasion of my work office moving, I present a satire from 1783 on Charles James Fox moving house from the affluent St. James’s to the emerging, but less central, Wimbledon. For Fox, this was the equivalent of slumming.

Fox, who by 1783 had been the Leader of the House of Commons and the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, was known for his lavish lifestyle and enormous gambling debts.

In 1781 Fox’s furniture was removed and sold by the bailiffs, and this print suggests Fox has to move his remaining precious belongings to a less upscale locale to avoid another humiliating visit from the debt collectors.

Fox’s ”poverty” is underlined in the print by the scarcity of belongings carried by his servants. Two porters carry a stretcher on which are a deck of playing cards, a dice, a book on Whist (the card game) and a box of ”Title Deeds”. Perhaps Mr. Fox is not yet quite done with gambling...

Banksy (@banksy is originally from Bristol, where I study) went viral in October after he shredded a piece of his art as it was sold for auction, however he had already been dubbed an “art terrorist” long before. In 2005, he installed a mock artefact Peckham Rock in the Roman Britain Gallery of the @britishmuseum where alongside a hilarious fake label it went unnoticed for three whole days before being removed! It was brought back to the museum over 10 years later for the Ian Hislop, I Object exhibition, which explored controversial objects - I was quite pleased that the museum was not afraid to laugh at its own previous mistakes! This exhibition was one of many incredible ones that can be found on https://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on.aspx - there are only 3 days left to see the amazing Ashurbanipal: king of the world, king of the World and the countdown for Edvard Munch: love and angst begins! This has to be up there as my favourite Banksy piece, 2018

The entrance to the Acropolis via the Propylaia immediately allows visitors to gain a sense of scale. Beyond approaching the Parthenon it’s grandeur is enhanced by the very act of appreciating how its imposing scale dominate the Acropolis. Though it is a large and dominating building it has a balance and harmony that conveys a sense of the precision in its deign. Every element reflects careful conceptualisation. Where replicas of the pedimental sculptures remain, for example, their scale is in complete harmony with the complete structure. Now one has a sense of just how inappropriate the relocation of 75 metres of the original 160 metres of frieze, 15 of the 92 metopes, 17 pedimental figures along with various pieces of architecture, in the British Museum. They diminished and stripped from the relevance of structure and place. There can be no sense of the transformation in the aesthetics of the Parthenon through the passage of days and seasons. There  can be no sense of their place on a citadel or the character of the Pentelic Marble from which they have been so expertly and sensitively hewn. #in_athens #parthenon #ParthenonMarbles #Elgin #BritishMuseum #TheAcropolisMuseum #Byron #Acropolis #Architecture #PedimentalSculptures #Metopes #Freize #Athens #BringThemBack #Sculpture #History #Geography #Helios #Selene #Cosmological #Imperial #BritishEmpire #Pentelic #pentelicmarble #Propylaia
