We’ve just been to Berlin with a group from the Friends of the Whitworth Art Gallery. We visited numerous museums and galleries and saw some great art. One of the highlights was the Jewish Museum, designed by Daniel Liebeskind. It is an amazing building, and the exhibits were very powerful and emotional. We were also lucky to see an exhibition of the Seccession movement with work from all three groups in Vienna, Munich and Berlin. I’d thought there was only one that was based in Vienna! There were several paintings of Klimt which were fabulous to see close up and in the real.

The weather was very hot most of the time but on one day it poured with rain. We got soaked and so went back to the hotel to dry off. While there, Graham read and I drew (in my tiny sketch book) him reading!!
