Richard Hamilton with a Baby

IMG_6999On our recent holiday in Spain, Feets and I visited the Reina Sofia.  I had the suspicion that she might find the temporary exhibitions more interractive than the permanent collection so off we went to explore the Richard Hamilton exhibition.  I do love seeing exhibits in Spain that would have been packed, crowded and uncomfortable in London and instead are filled with a trickle of tourists who had energy left after they'd seen Guernica.
