A wet and miserable day calls for a visit to a museum and Leeds certainly fitted the bill last week.
The website did say that the upper galleries would be closed so that was a blow as it is practically all of the permanent collection, so there was no chance to see their Nevinson, Bomberg, Gertler pieces and no Mr Turner, who would have been a great comforter having been soaked to the skin by a bus!
There was the Terry Frost exhibition, and having seen some of his work at the Higgins Bedford at the start of this tour, I thought I would have a wander through.
Really liked this one: Green, Black and White Movement
The palette was so soothing and the shapes seem to rock slightly, just like the boats on a gentle wave. It was lovely to stare at and think about nothing at all.
There is a Tate Shots on Terry Frost that explains his importance to the art movement that began in St Ives: Tate Shots
Exhibition ends on Sunday! http://www.leeds.gov.uk/museumsandgalleries/Pages/leedsartgallery/Terry-Frost.aspx
