Travel Notes: London Weekend

London

 

The highlight of the weekend we had spent in London was visiting the David Hockney, Printmakerexhibit at The Dulwich Picture Gallery.

It was worth it take the trip from Paris to London and then out to Dulwich just to visit this show. With over 100 works on display, it had all of the David Hockney drawings I’ve always stared at in books but never seen in person. All of the flowers, the sublime pools, the scratchy portraits, the pale pink mist in the weather series. Large and up close, some of the illustrations surprised me by not being what they had seemed in small pictures. They were even more amazing.

Also making our weekend trip fun was a stay at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, which was like a mini-vacation in itself. Everything you could want was already there, plus a juice and flower shop right at the entrance.
