Tomorrow, at last, I will be going to the V&A to see The Cult of Beauty exhibition.
For some people, it's Tracey Emin.
For me, it's beautiful art for beauty's sake.
I cannot wait to see it all...
The Cult of Beauty: The Aesthetic Movement 1860-1900
"The first major exhibition to comprehensively explore Aestheticism, an extraordinary artistic movement which sought to escape the ugliness and materialism of the Victorian era by creating a new kind of art and beauty.
This exhibition shows how Aesthetic artists, designers, poets and collectors promoted the idea of ‘art for art’s sake’ and how the idea of the ‘house beautiful’ became a touchstone of cultured life. The exhibition gathers together for the first time many of the greatest masterpieces of Victorian painting along with sculpture, design, furniture, architecture, fashion and literature. It includes iconic work by Burne-Jones, Whistler, Leighton, Rossetti, William Morris, Aubrey Beardsley and Oscar Wilde."
A dream ...
I think therefore I write.
