Leading to Selfridges feeling quite parched would love to pop in for a good old fashioned cuppa. But we must press on.
Arriving at the queens Gallery, we were chuffed that Lucy Ann Gray (Services Manager, Buckingham Palace, recognises us in the queue, then came over to have a chat. After been greeted by ”Good morning, Gurmeet – We have a special treat for you today, Emily Hannan the Exhibition Curator is waiting to meet you! So when you’ve checked in I’ll introduce you to her.”
Interviewing Emily Hannan senior Curator and specialist in rare and exotic paintings from India since 1603 was indeed fascinating. These paintings have never been on public display and never will be again. So yes, a rare opportunity.
We exchanged emails for any future consultations about the splendours of the Indian exhibition.
