Art in clothes and watercolours
Dante Gabriel Rossetti's watercolour, The Tune of the Seven Towers / Tate Britain
Watercolour, a show at Tate Britain in London, plucks the art from its usual context—shows of U.K. landscape painters—and traces it back through 800 years. . .
The Tate's exhibit of more than 200 paintings runs through Aug. 21st. Visitors can see an illuminated manuscript from 1200, some of the greatest British landscape paintings and botanical drawings, and an array of 20th-century watercolors. . .
Then there are the photographs created by capturing Kate Middleton dressed for various occasions.
The future princess and her wedding dress have excited enormous curiosity. It's been suggested that Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, who is enormously talented and humble, will design it with her team.
I wonder who designed the clothes in Rossetti's marvellous watercolour. . .
