The British Museum is always a fantastic place to visit, with a wealth of wonderful objects from all around the world and throughout the ages. I have lived in London all my life, and have visited the British Museum regularly since I was a child, every visit I will always find something new to catch my eye. Apart from the permanent collections, the British Museum has a changing calendar of special exhibitions and displays. One of my favourite display rooms is Room 90 Prints & Drawings, where presently being exhibited is a famous set of etchings, The Vollard Suite by Picasso. I saw this exhibition recently and came away extremely impressed by the bold draughtsmanship of the etchings, by the energy, movement and emotion that Picasso imbues in such a simple thing as a drawn line.
For me some of the most powerful prints featured the Minotaur and the violently embracing figures.
There is also a podcast available which includes Andrew Graham Dixon reviewing the exhibition on Front Row BBC Radio 4, which is quite an interesting listen, here is a link to it, his review is at the end of the podcast:
