Now that school has started and that children are settled into their routine, I’m sure that like me you have plenty of time on your hands to enjoy life (OK, I am kidding here, why does this never happen???). In any case if at some stage you do, here is a little summary of the main exhibitions coming to London over 2019-2020 .
The exhibition I am most keen to take the family to is “Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh” , which will be at the Saatchi Gallery between 2 Nov and 3 May. This is the third leg of a major touring exhibitions, displaying many objects which had previously not left Egypt, so booking in advance is highly recommended.
Another exhibition on my go-to list is the “Gaugin Portraits”, at the National Gallery between 7 October and 26 January.
And a few other that could take my fancy:
- At the National Portrait Gallery: “BP Portrait Awards” (until 20 October); “David Hockney: Drawings from Life” (27 February- 31 May); and “Pre-Raphaelite Sisters” (17 October – 26 January).
- At the Queen’s Gallery in Buckingham Palace: “Da Vinci: a Life in Drawings” (until 13 October.
Not the most exciting year exhibition-wise, so if you have additional suggestions, do not hesitate to post them on the WW website!
