Waaaaay back in June I went on a trip to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. The coach journey there was pretty awful and made me feel very ill, but as soon as I saw the imposing Ashmolean facade I felt a little better. I had been given a ticket for the Cezanne and the Modern exhibition, which was interesting and well put together but not particularly my thing. I still enjoyed looking at Cezanne's use of colour, and there were some very beautiful landscapes and watercolours of trees.
This bird skull with a rather impressive beak was both fascinating, and slightly terrifying!
Overall I really enjoyed my visit to the Ashmolean Museum, and I am hoping to go back for a longer visit (with no coach travel!) as soon as I can. It's a wonderful museum, filled with treasures, and I think for anyone creative it could provide a great source of inspiration. After all, it worked for Tolkien!
