COMMENT: The British Museum

Room 1 - The Enlightenment Gallery - one of the best rooms in London.  Completed in 1828, it was designed by Robert Smirke to house the library of King George III.  It is now a cabinet of curiosities on a vast scale.  Discovering the world in the 18th Century...

On to a preview of Ice Age Art, the oldest figurative art that are staggeringly 10,000 to 40,000 years old.  A very moving collection of some 130 objects on loan from Germany, France, the Czech Republic and Siberia.

From February 7 - May 26, 2013. DO NOT MISS.
