The Agony in the Carpark © Grayson Perry 2012
This tapestry picked up the blue stripes of the period wallpaper against which it was hung, and its images were reflected in the rococo overmantel mirror. A new context adding to the debate.
The tapestries looked very different from their earlier showing at the Foundling Museum in London where they were hung together in art gallery style and spoke to each other in close-up detail. Elsewhere there was a showing of Yinko Shonibare's work, again on the Hogarthian Rake theme, but rather cramped in their space for real impact.
And don't miss the Foundling Museum's lovely cafe, food for mind and body.
