Looking back as we look forward
The reality that my 2020 travel plans (and the inevitable art 'intake' that was supposed to go with them) have all but gone up in smoke has now well and truly hit me in the face.
Given a 2nd trip to Moscow was on the cards, the bad news is that there won't be any new rave reviews of Russian socialist realist paintings. The good news is that I can and will 'recycle' my old museum visits so there will be, among others, rave reviews of Russian socialist paintings after all. Ha.
Yes, I am one of those annoying people who use their mobile phone to take (very wonky) photos in museums, which means I have plenty of material to use. The last 3-4 years were incredibly rich in travel and arty discoveries, so the idea is to use the blog to revisit some of them.
