the problem I have with this gallery- indeed, most of the big-name galleries in central London- isn't so much the content, as the crowds. I suppose its a good thing that so many people are interested in art nowerdays, but I don't particularly want to look at exhibits whilst simultaniously fighting other visitors for floor-space. Its the same at Tate Modern
, although I did go the other day, really early on a Sunday morning, when it first opened, and it was a bit better. When-ever I am in galleries on the continent, its never as bad as it is in London. The recent Modigliani exhibition in Milan, for example. 15 galleries of his very best works, and able to get right close up and personal with them, at 2pm on a Saturday.
