As well as the Tate allowing visitors to take photos in their exhibitions, they seem to have decided to dedicate more of their single artist shows to women artists, which is good to see.

This summer their main show at Tate Modern was Natalia Gonchorova, a pre First World War and interwar artist who set the scene (literally) for Stravinsky’s valleys and inspired both Picasso and Matisse.

The exhibition shop was also a good one, with several short story collections that I snapped up and have been devouring since.

Love the sense of space that the painter opens up for the viewer here through the billowing fabric being ironed and the rooftop view, whilst also getting across the sense of what a dark and cramped room the ironing is happening in. “La Repasseuse” by Georges Antoine Van Zevenberghen
