Before my last Advanced Painting class on Friday , I went to the prints exhibition room 90 at the British Museum to see 'Touch:Works on paper' by Maggi Hambling. But I got distracted by the selection of works in the display area to the right:
'Modern Design and Graphics: Objects and Prints from Post-War Europe'
A small display of objects and prints, highlighting the relationship between three-dimensional objects and two-dimensional objects.
My favourite was by Swedish artist Philip von Schantz , a watercolour 'Towards Arholma' where the curved vessels merge with the water and sky. Having actual vessels displayed alongside was inspired . I found other examples of his work online like the one below
Morandi etchings ( rather a contrast to the dusty bottles they were drawn from!!)
studies of waves that I find compelling in capturing their force and energy.
