I went to see the new Dutch galleries at the Wallace Collection on the weekend. They look very well, as old fashioned art types used to say. I particularly liked the new daylight-balanced lighting. It takes a while to get used to, as one's eye is so conditioned to the yellow glow of tungsten lighting in museums. But goodness what a difference. The colours are so much more subtle, particularly in the blues, reds and darks. Museums everywhere - more please!
