Beatrix Potter Display Opens at V&A
Date Posted: 31/01/14
A fascinating new display has just opened at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) giving a perspective on the art of Beatrix Potter than some may never have seen before.
Rather than Peter Rabbit and her other children's characters, this looks at Potter's art during the First World War.
According to the museum, the Mrs Tiggywinkle and Jemima Puddle-Duck creator was living in the Lake District at the time.
The new display, Beatrix Potter: The land, the Seasons and the War, began on January 21st and showcases landscape watercolours the artist created during WWI.
Her illustrations for a political leaflet and poster campaign are also on show at the event, which will be housed in room 102, Leighton, until October 12th.
It's free to see, and could be part of a London short break itinerary that also took in other parts of the wonderful V&A, as well as museum venues like the Tate Britain, the National Gallery and the British Museum, all of which are also home to art.
