    It was good to look again at the paintings and drawings I looked at yesterday in the exhibition to which this is the accompanying book. Indeed dare I say it in some cases it was easier to do this through the book as the sometimes distracting lighting and settings in the exhibition detracted from the viewers ability to simply gaze and enjoy

    If you’re in South London over the next few months, I’d highly recommend the current exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery ‘Rembrandt’s Light’ some really intricate sketches, etchings and lovely paintings. Marvel at how he introduces light into his pictures.
