The Last of England

Snapped last Thursday in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge: Ford Maddox Brown’s The Last of England. 

And so it is for me today. Goodbye, London, until next time. 

Pictured top: Ford Maddox Brown, The Last of England, 1860, oil on canvas. A reworking of Brown’s 1855 painting in the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, the work commemorates the departure for Australia of the sculptor Thomas Woolner and his family in July 1852.
