Reading Aloud

 "Art that existed to be beautiful."
Post Cards and pretty things from this incredible exhibition at The V&A, it was a pleasure wandering around these beautiful paintings. Personally i found 'Reading Aloud' to be the most mesmerising, if i could some how copy this image onto my wall i would be in heaven, the colours and the prints are just heavenly. The aesthetic movement definitely leaves me in awe, and i went a little bit crazy when i saw all the post cards in the gift shop.
