So, the Gauguin: Maker of Myth exhibition closed on Sunday. All this week, couriers have been turning up from around the world to oversee their paintings, sculptures and other works of art being packed up, ready to go out to the second venue of the exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.
I’m very sad to see the works go and everything else being dismantled for the next exhibition in this space (mind you…its Joan Miró, so put it in your diary!) The Gauguin exhibition has been a fantastic experience for me and I just wanted to say a big ‘thank you’ for reading my blog and for all your comments, whether in reaction to things that I said, or your experiences in the exhibition itself. Believe me, we have been reading all your messages (and noting down some of your thoughts, on labelling in particular!) They’ve been fascinating, entertaining and thought-provoking - so thanks again. Maybe I’ll see some of you in Washington, DC in February? With all best wishes, Christine
