Default The Wallace Collection, London - rapier exhibition

Just to mention for anyone in London this summer - The Wallace Collection have a new exhibition "The Noble Art of the Sword - Fashion and Fencing in Renaissance Europe". Had a look yesterday, excellent material; it runs to 16th September 2012.

Regards.

Hi Colin,


Their web site does not mention an accompanying publication - did you notice one?

When I attended the Wallace in 1990 they would not permit taking photos, not even by special appointment. I am curious to learn whether they have changed their policy.


Best,
Michael

According to their website:
Quote:
Photography for personal use is permitted within the galleries. The use of tripods and flash is not allowed. No photography is permitted of temporary exhibitions or of items on loan to the Wallace Collection. Any other photographic requests by appointment only.

Thank you so much, Berkley,

And shame on me for overlooking that.

Best,

Michael

Catalog has now been released, at a remarkably reasonable price.
I just ordered my copy. Unfortunately it's a paper-back, no hard cover edition is available. But I hear that it is quite good, with excellent photos.

Hi Michael

Your questions are already answered - photos without flash are allowed in the permanent exhibition galleries, and there is a very nice catalogue of the rapier exhibition.

Wonderful collections of both European and Eastern Arms and Armour, also a good bookshop, cafe and free admission !

Regards
Colin
