McManus Galleries - Queen Elizabeth Exhibition - V & A at Dundee




Today I went along to the McManus: Dundee's Art Gallery and Museum to visit the new exhibition of photographs of Queen Elizabeth II by Cecil Beaton. This is part of the programme of events organised by the V & A at Dundee.








It is fair to say that I am not the biggest royalist but this is a really good exhibition. It is a beautifully staged exhibition. There are some really interesting photographs in the exhibition. These photographs tell us much about royalty, as well fashion and social history.








The McManus is always worth a visit and this exhibition is well worth a visit. This is just a taster of what the V & A at Dundee could be like. Along with my Labour colleagues in the city we will work hard, with everyone with Dundee's best interests at heart, to help deliver the V & A at Dundee.
