Tube And Tate

25 Jan

25 tube

Just back from a day trip to London to see the Paul Klee exhibition at Tate Modern. I had a bit of a scribble on the London Underground before the show. It’s difficult to look at someone like Klee with fresh eyes because he was so influential that his legacy is all around us in illustration, textile design, advertising, and I find it hard to see past that and appreciate how truly innovative he was at the time. He was one of the artists that the Nazis labelled as degenerate, but now his work is mainstream.

I thought the show was very well curated and took visitors through the development of his life and work with a vast collection of pieces. We also had the chance to go to the Tate Members’ Lounge as guests of our friends, so we sat on the roof terrace overlooking London in the crisp sunshine hobnobbing with the privileged! And me a scruffy urchin from a council estate 😀
