Visiting the RA Summer Exhibition 2011, London

Last week we caught a fast train and headed into a hot and steamy London to see the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2011, which the Pink Tulip Study IV print has been selected for, and it was great to see the huge range of artworks.  And also huge as in size; some paintings and photographic prints literally towered over us, filling the space from the floor to the ceiling.  Imagine the size of the printer needed for such large photo prints, or the space a painter would have to find to work on giant canvases like these…

The exhibition is currently on and continues until 15th August.  For those of us in the UK, BBC2 is broadcasting The Culture Show this coming Thursday (16th June), which is covering the event  in a one-hour special.  Hope you get the chance to visit the show; the photographic prints are displayed in the first exhibition room you come to.  Enjoy!
