Beautiful Travel Art: Shakespeare @Selfridges, Manus x Machina and Georgia O’Keefe

 

On my recent trips to London and NY, I saw some beautiful exhibitions and windows. I thought I would collect the pictures on here as a beautiful picture diary.

First up, The beautiful windows at Selfridges  that were all inspired by Shakespeare plays. A beautiful creative approach to the Bard, and how can one not love the mix of theater and fashion in my favorite store. All the windows had quotes from the plays and a creative interpretation, and inside there was a whole area dedicated to inspired fashion.

I spent my Birthday morning this year at the Tate Modern in London looking at the Georgie O’Keefe exhibition. I have to give a disclaimer: I am not a huge fan of O’Keefe. However I was a fan of the exhibition. I thought it was wonderfully curated, a very complete and detailed retrospective on who she is and her art, and though i might still not love her art, I understand it in a whole other level, which is what I think the purpose of this exhibitions are.

Bonus Points: I went to the The Charlotte Bronte Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London, and loved this portrait they had on display, one of the few pictures there are of the Bronte Sisters
