- 18 Folgate Street - or vice versa, but in fact that is irrelevant since the two are now so intertwined in my mind’s eye. The aspects of the district which I hold onto are a little like the essence that I retained of the museum itself in Folgate Street. Town House in Fournier Street allows you to get a glimpse of this. And so I for one, am just glad that these last remaining streets have been preserved, whatever the means, even if that does involve seeing that tiresome Chanel logo, and others brandished over a store in the ‘Old Spitalfields Market’…But all things considered, what’s a small price to pay..

Christelle Téa. Naturally, I cannot show any photos of the art in question but a virtual viewing of the work via the site or an actual visit to the museum itself allows you to enter the intricate world of this young artist. The museum Cognacq-Jay - dedicated largely to the 18th century - was absolutely beautiful, but more about this illustrious setting another day... 'series' that this artist creates. In fact, the unbelievable detail of these drawings allows me to unashamedly acknowledge that I love the magic of lilliputian landscapes - real or imaginary; the mysterious depths of Miss Haversham's house - shrouded in cobwebs and dust; abandonned ruins of old buildings - vestiges of their former finery and grace; the perfect, miniature detail of antique dollshouses.
