Visiting Seurat

Photography in London art galleries is strongly frowned upon, so this is a discreet cameraphone shot. The impressionist painting on the wall is "Une Baignade, Asnières" ("Bathers at Asnières") and surprises first-time visitors, who often don’t expect the famous image to be over two metres tall and three metres wide. Asnières is an industrial suburb west of Paris on the River Seine. The painting shows a group of young workmen enjoying a break by the river.
