Victoria & Albert Museum Medieval and Renaissance galleries

23 February 2010

On Saturday we visited the new Medieval and Renaissance galleries at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The exhibits are beautifully presented – there’s lots of space and light much like the refurbished Ashmolean Museum in Oxford (reviewed here in November 2009). I felt there was less of a coherent narrative than at the Ashmolean: the V&A tends to present historic objects as art. But the new galleries are visually stunning and there are some real gems to discover.

I heard there was a quilt exhibit in London, but not sure if it is at the V&A or elsewhere....

Did you see it?
(mapb but not sure how to say so)

Didn't see it I'm afraid, though it may well be at the V&A - it's a big place!
