Pictures in the Landscape – Dovedale
June 10, 2010 Leave a comment
Ann Atkinson, Derbyshire Poet Laureate led a poetry walk around Dovedale and shared some of her favourite landscaped inspired poems. Ros Westwood, Derbyshire Museum Manager led a walk later in the week to talk about the art works displayed.
Many of the greatest thinkers of the eighteenth century were drawn to the beauty of Derbyshire. Dovedale proved to be a source of inspiration for scientists and writers who shared a growing fascination for the natural world. Pictures in the Landscape proved a great success and it is hoped that the exhibition will be displayed again later in the year.
