Compton Verney visit

Rather than watching the Royal Wedding yesterday we took the opportunity to visit Compton Verney in Warwickshire for the first time. I had seen there was an exhibition of Alfred Wallis & Ben Nicolson's work so it seemed a ideal time to go!

This was my favourite in the exhibition:

'St Ives' 1928 oil on card

The 'Wool work: A sailor's art exhibition which is running along side the Alfred Wallis is well worth a look too!

Huge rocking horse sculpture in the grounds

'The Horse is a Noble Animal' by Marcia Farquhar

Laminated & varnished marine plywood

490 x 365cm

Photography is not allowed in the house without prior arrangement so next time I'll get a pass.

Worth mentioning the cafe is pretty good too!
