Have you had chance to catch the V&A’s free display exploring the role of London in Kensington-born Beatrix Potters life and work? If not, you’ve only got a few weeks left…
The free display marks the 150th anniversary of her birth in Bolton Gardens, Kensington (where Bousfield Primary School now stands after the house was destroyed in the Blitz). Being a local gal, Beatrix’s childhood was full of local memories – especially the museums of Exhibition Road, which helped inform her thinking on science, art and nature.
The display complements the V&A’s permanent collection (which is the world’s largest collection of BP’s drawings, manuscripts and correspondence).
The display runs until 28 April 2017 in Gallery 102 at the V&A (Cromwell Road, SW7 2RL)
