Madrid and British Museum

Came across these Japanese style cloud trees in Madrid. Most unexpected! We looked at some wonderful art there.

A recent London trip saw us at the Van Gogh exhib, well worth even the 2 hour queue. The on to Cornelissen the art pigment people to stock up. The good news is that they are planning to set up a website with ordering: It is a small shop full of character (and helpful staff). I always half expect Turner or someone historic to walk in.

On to The British Museum print room to see Mexican prints. Stunning collection, and of course upstairs to the Japan rooms.
