Details and Textures in the Victoria and Albert Museum

Victoria and Albert Museum, London, Statue

Since interviewing Daisy de Plume of THATMuse (interview here), I've been thinking a lot about London museums. 

One of my favorite museums in the world, let alone London, is the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A). Founded in 1852, it is the world's largest museum of decorative arts and design. My last visit was in September 2012, when I was in London for a friend's birthday weekend. I may only have been in town for two days, but I made sure to visit both the British Museum and the V&A.

With only two hours for my V&A visit, I decided to go on a meandering photo safari, a trick in my museum toolbox that helps me look at objects more closely. You simply pick a theme and focus on artworks around that theme, with the aim of looking at everything differently. This visit’s theme was intriguing details and textures in artworks.

And so I present Details & Textures as found in the V&A:
