London and Rothko in the Tate Modern

We spent the day in London yesterday to see the Rothko Exhibition in the Tate Modern.

The exhibition is on until the 1st of February, and I highly recommend it if you can make it. I was deeply moved by Rothko's imagery, which in its apparent simplicity leaves space for the viewer. There is a lot of interesting information about his life and the way he works as well. I suggest you go there early as the queues around some of the exhibits can get quite long.

We also had a look at some of the other exhibitions, I especially enjoyed the Poetry & Dream collection which 'shows how contemporary art grows from, reconnects with, and can provide fresh insights into the art of the past'.

It was a long day and very cold but I saw The Globe which is situated almost right next to the Tate and there was a lovely sunny view across the Thames to St Paul's. We managed to fit in Borough Market for lunch and Convent Garden as well before we went back off home.

Although I am very tired today, I feel inspired by the art I've seen and simply by having had a day out away from everything.
