London, Paris, Tokyo

The hugely successful Cult of Beauty: The Aesthetic Movement in Britain, 1860-1900  exhibition has now transferred from the V&A in London, to the Musee D'Orsay in Paris.

Design for decoration of door and wall 
by Arthur Silver, around 1885.

It's great that the objects on loan from the Museum of Domestic Design & Architecture will be seen by even more people.  And it's a good excuse to think about booking a trip to Paris...

Meanwhile, we're in discussion with some Japanese curators who are keen for us to lend them some of MoDA's katagami stencils, for an exhibition to be held at the Mitsubishi Ichikogan Museum, Tokyo, next year.  Watch this space!
