Italian renaissance drawings

Andrea del Verrocchio, Head of a woman (detail), c. 1475.

To London today for the annual meeting of the Analysis Committee. The journal seems in cheering health (though it seems as if the now out-of-control “publish or perish” pressures are leading to almost absurd numbers of submissions).

Then, across the road from the Senate House to the British Museum. I’d clean forgotten that there is an exhibition of Italian renaissance drawings on there, some from the BM itself, some from the Uffizi.

So that was an absolutely delightful surprise — some wonderful drawings, very beautifully presented, and not so many on show as to be overwhelming. Go (it’s on until  July 25).

    Such a shame that I’ll miss this, would have been very interesting for my course. Would you think the catalogue worth getting (and lugging back to the Bahamas)?
