The Cult of Beauty at the V & A

This marvellous exhibition represents and reconsiders the late nineteenth-century search for Beauty. Long before the syncretism of cultural studies, writers, painters, weavers, architects, bookbinders, furniture makers, potters, dressmakers, glassmakers and even some manufacturers tried to saturate living spaces and cultural products with beauty; to live artistically, to break free of conventional responses and stale imagery. If you haven’t visited, enjoy the pictures, and hurry – the exhibition ends July 22. If you have, please post a comment.
