Gems in a quiet spot

Summer holidays mean schools and universities are quiet little spots where it is usually a hotbed of movement.

At the Brynmor Jones Library at the University of Hull, there is a spot full of some beautiful pieces that just exude peace and quiet!

Some of my favourite artists are represented here and it was a real joy to see:

Mark Gertler’s self portrait:


Cornucopia by Frank Dobson:


Woman by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska:


and a pretty Nevinson –  Steep Hill, Lincoln


This is such a lovely space and the lighting was perfect – I usually have a problem with glare off the glass but here it was a real bonus. If you are ever in Hull, do go along to this.
