I was in Birmingham last week with some spare time, so popped to the city art gallery for a quick look around, here’s some pictures copied at home from sketches I made in the gallery.

I was impressed by a substantial angel in the entrance hall which turned out to be a Lucifer by Jacob Epstein (contemplating the flames of Hell, rather than stepping into a hot bath), and a full-size version of Epstein’s Rock Drill (whose torso I recognise from my first visit to the Tate).

Also a nice selection of Japanese woodblock prints, including some by Kuniyoshi from which I sketched a few figures – I especially liked the blustery scene in which a woman tries to keep her kimono from flying up, good comic action!
