Not Quite Titian

Underground poster of the National Gallery's Titian/Metamorphosis exhibition

I love this poster and the image within it. I’ve spent hours looking at it while waiting for trains. I’ve worked out alternative positions for projections, where the lighting has come from and what sort it is, I’ve worked out the difference it would make if the dancers had shaved and how people might collaborate to find just the right pose. I’ve even been at the exhibition’s entrance after having attended a roving lecture on art and dance.

Then I finally scraped together the time to go and see it. The day after it closed. Luckily I checked on the internet first.
