His collection is on display at Somerset House (incidentally closing for repairs in September).
- For a small museum, this is a huge collection of impressionist and post-impressionist art!
- I was very taken in by Degas's barmaid. Physically standing in front of her makes it fully clear what an extraordinary painting it is, and how twisted the perspective.
- Well-informed, brief yet penetrating signs accompanying the works of art.
- Beautiful place, really!
- I found the light a bit problematic. It was often hard to find the right angle to view the paintings without reflected light getting caught on the canvas.
In short : Hurry up, it's closing soon, and for two years.
