Many thanks to Jenni Lloyd from Sue Bond Public Relations (www.suebond.co.uk) for sending me the three photographs shown in this post. Jenni also very kindly sent me the text of the wall panels. Thanks also to the staff at the Courtauld Gallery for coming back to me after my visit.

HARMONIA MUNDI HMC902135 (CD + DVD)
My first visit to the Courtauld is noted below.
My previous trip was when I was new to using a cane and I found the steps and courtyard difficult to negotiate. The whole site had been a large car park and houses an area for performances and a skating rink in the winter.

An amusing incident. My companion was reading out the caption and on saying that Adam was scratching his head, two women commented that they had not noticed that. (Ways of Seeing)
