The Fundacian Juan March opened its new British arts and crafts exhibition on Friday evening to resounding success, queues were sighted around the block. It’s a phenomenal exhibition with exhibits from major private collectors (present company excepted – Jimmy Page being one) and strong support from the V & A and Hunterian. My paltry images capture a small flavour only. Well worth a trip if you are looking for a weekend away.
