The Colourful World of Kaffe Fassett - American Museum in Bath

If you like colours, you will like Keffe Fassett. This is the second exhibition of his works we went to see at the American Museum in Bath. It is also a more ambitious one, taking over the house itself. Here is a mini guided tour, in pictures.

I love Kaffe Fassett's work, saw an exhibition of his work in Cornwall a few years ago and of course bought the book. Thank you for letting me know about this ex closer to home.
