London Open House Stop 1 : Royal Academy of Arts In Burlington House.
As a science student, I've always hated art as a subject and my grades suffered because of this. But now I am trying to understand more about art and even find part of it fascinating especially in relation to the rich history of a culture.
My favourite exhibitions from this visit :
1️⃣ Ecorche figures. Students of anatomy removed the skin from dead bodies so that they can study the muscles better before casting it into plaster.
2️⃣ A feminist of her time, Angelica Kaufman was one of the two female founding members of the Royal Academy.
3️⃣ A depiction of Satan summoning his legions.
4️⃣ Exhibition of technology impact to the home environment - blurring the lines between private and public, urban and domestic.
