Museum Journal - Part 13

Museum Journal - Part 13

Part 13 of the Director of the National Museum of Britsh History's Diary, for regular client Museum Journal (MJ).

This month our man commissions artwork from 10 of the country's top artists (Tracy Emin, Damian Hurst et al.) to mark the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. But the artwork is all critical and the Director is forced to donate all the artwork to an unnamed northern museum.

Here our man ponders Steve Bell's portrayal of Prince Charles (Prince of Wales) as St. George, being eaten alive by a Welsh dragon!

As always with MJ the final print size is minute (3 or 4 cm across tops) so its crucial to keep the design very simple and the detail to a minimum.

So glad to see a new post Paul. I've been anticipating this one, for obvious reasons. Being a Welshman, the notion of a Welsh Dragon consuming the P or W well and truly hits my funny-bone!
