Virtual Tour of the British Museum, London
The British Museum, in the Bloomsbury area of London, England, is a public institution dedicated to human history, art, and culture. Its permanent collection of some eight million works is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence, having been widely collected during the era of the British Empire!
This iconic museum located in the heart of London allows virtual visitors to tour the Great Court and discover the ancient Rosetta Stone and Egyptian mummies. You can also find hundreds of artifacts on the museum’s virtual tour.
The meaning behind the Treachery of Images
René Magritte, the Belgian surrealist painter created The Treachery of Images when he was 30 years old.
Magritte loved word games.
He was also determined to prove that the painting and poetry were on an equal footing despite the Surrealists’ constant flaunting on the pre-eminence of the written word.
Magritte caches the gap between the language and the meaning. His statement is taken to mean that the painting itself is not a pipe; it is merely an image of a pipe.

We Love Art Painting of The Week
Blue Dancers, or Dancers in Blue, was made in 1895 and is amongst the most famous Edgar Degas ballet paintings.
Ballerinas were one of his favourite subjects to paint simply because of the rhythmic allure of ballet. The painting is one of the very few works where the artist opted for cool tones.
Launch of the We Love Art Masterclasses
After some lovely feedback from the We Love Art painting courses, we are so excited for the launch of our first masterclass, on the 25th of April.
The first masterclass will be on unique and interesting palette knife techniques! We will have you covered with everything- painting materials, a food platter, tea and much more.
