MUSEUMS: While at the British Museum writing a 2nd article on Ancient Greece & the Parthenon Marbles I’m distracted from my intended Greece: Parthenon Room 18 by this.
(below) The beauty & culture of Ancient Greece on show at the British Museum today.
And for that small matter of the Parthenon Marbles click link for my photos in magazine https://whatshotlondon.co.uk/so-whats-all-the-fuss-about-the-parthenon-marbles-anyway/
In this article I examine ownership of the Parthenon Marbles in light of the British Museum’s announcement of a Rodin exhibition alongside these classical treasures from Ancient Greece. I also include poems by Keats & Lord Byron on the Marbles. And Byron gives his view on who owns them!

SCULPTURE: Check out my article here on poets Lord Byron (1788-1824) and John Keats’ (1795-1821) differing views on the Parthenon Marbles which were shipped from Greece to Britain in 1807 during the Turkish conflict. http://artsreviews.webs.com/
