MOONSTRIPS, Napoleon and Michelangelo

Untitled-14

A bit of catching up to do! Last month I visited the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge where I saw several exhibitions. First up was ‘MOONSTRIPS: Eduardo Paolozzi and the printed collage 1965-72′ which consisted of screenprints, collages and photolithographs by Paolozzi. Next I visited the print room where ‘Modern Heroism: Printmaking and the legacy of Napoleon Bonaparte’ was on display. This exhibition included lithographs which both celebrated and ridiculed Napoleon, as well as prints illustrating the time period.

I also saw two pieces of sculpture, the first being the Rothschild bronzes, a pair of bronzes believed to be made by Michelangelo and a maquette of Antony Gormley’s ‘Angel of The North’.

Unfortunately because of my late blog posting most of these exhibitions have now closed. However, ‘A Michelangelo Discovery’ is on display until 9th August. The ‘Angel of The North’ maquette may also still be on display.
