There are a couple of particularly good exhibitions on at the Fitzwilliam Museum here in Cambridge at the moment. Treasured Possessions from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment is fascinating, quirky, and full of wonderful exhibits. And now today we went to Watercolour – Elements of nature, a quite beautifully and illuminatingly mounted show of paintings from the Fitz’s own stunning collection — including their iconic Samuel Palmer, ‘The Magic Apple Tree’ which hasn’t been shown for some years, as well as paintings by Cotman and de Wint, Turner and Ruskin, Cezanne and Pissarro. And John Singer Sergeant, as above. The exhibitions are both free too. Very definitely worth a visit to Cambridge in the next month or so to see.
