Beanbags?! (ctd.)

Image of Beanbags?! (ctd.)


I learnt recently that beanbags are available for use in the Banqueting House in Whitehall, so people can gaze up at the wonderful Rubens ceiling. What a good idea. And because it doesn't involve taking out any original furniture (as the National Trust did at Ickworth), there'll be no ranting from me.

Incidentally, I hear of low morale in the National Trust. Strange things are afoot.

I wonder, by the way, if the Rubens ceiling in the Banqueting House is the most valuable painting in the UK's public collection. Anyone know?
