Furniture Porn and an American Illustrator

Spent the morning at Dulwich College being wowed by the amazing furniture at the Mid Century Modern fair. So much temptation. We found the perfect coffee table only to be told that it had just sold 🙁 Better luck next time!

To cheer ourselves up we then visited Dulwich Picture Gallery to see the first ever exhibition in the UK of celebrated American Illustrator Norman Rockwell. Such a talented artist! All 323 of his Saturday Evening Post covers, which appeared between 1916 and 1963, are displayed alongside some of the original artworks so its a great bit of social history too. I urge anyone interested in illustration to get down there and see the exhibition before it closes on 27th March.
