Love at National Gallery

Giovanni Battista Tiepolo - The Banquet of Cleopatra (1740s)Today the National Gallery in London opened a touring exhibition which has already been seen in Bristol and Newcastle upon Tyne. It's simply called Love. You'll find it in the Sunley Room until 5 October, admission free. It looks something of a cobbled-together mess. What has Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's The Banquet of Cleopatra (1740s) got to do with love? And why include modern rubbish such as David Hockney's We Two Boys Together Clinging (1961)? Still, the price is right. Worth a look.
