A day in Cliveden

If you want to indulge yourself on a sunny day, go to Cliveden! This national trust is located west of London, near Slough and Windsor. This place offers magnificent gardens overlooking the River Thames and far-reaching views. The amateurs of flowers will be delighted, those looking for a nap in the sun won’t forget it, and if you are under 10 you’ll enjoy doing rolls on the grass!

A day at the Imperial War Museum

I must say I am not particularly attracted by museums related to wartime.

And once again, this museum offers free admission, therefore you have no excuse avoiding it…

Delacroix at the National Gallery

Delacroix has always been a great painter to me. This French romantic artist was fond of bright colours and energetic brushstrokes. His opposition to Ingres is well-known and justified as Ingres put more emphasis on the drawing and adopted a neoclassical style, whereas Delacroix stressed on colours and movement in his paintings. Delacroix marked a break with the past techniques and styles.
