British Museum, London extra – European Art History through Drawings
As I didn’t have my camera tripod in hand, I had to make due what I had , hence the footage is a bit shaky …or as the French would say… pein-air style.
The British Museum in London was designed in the 19th century by Sir Robert Smirke. Sir Hans Slone was the the origin collector who collected the first 71000 piece. The origin of collection included antiquities, coins, natural history specimens. Nowadays it has over 8 million object.
Smirke designed the building in the Greek Revival style, witch emulated classical Greek style. This style was so popular in the 18th century.
The Museum has 6 million visitors in a year.
