British Museum (1) : nature in Chinese art
This tiny exhibition explores the symbol-laden depiction of nature in Chinese art, through painting (especially scrolls), tapestries, ceramics and more. I took notes as I wandered through the dimly-lit rooms, where these exceptional (if extremely fragile) pieces were displayed, but rather than impose a scholarly digest on you, I thought I'd let the art speak for itself...
There will be more art from the British Museum before the week is over, I promise!
