NEWSIn an article about the Wissa Wassef tapestries in the spring issue ofNADFAS Review (page 11), the writer refers to tapestries being acquiredby the British Museum and the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester. Wewould like to clarify that the tapestries wereactually gifted to both institutions by the RamsesWissa Wassef Exhibition Trust. In our winter 2009 issue the writer of the featureabout the Ashmolean museum failed to creditJohn Tradescent Snr (c1570-1638) and his son,John Tradescent (1608-1662), who began thecollection, display and charge system to viewtheir "rarities" at their home in Lambeth. Uponthe death of the younger man, the collectiontransferred to Oxford University to provide thefoundation of the Ashmolean Museum.NADFAS travel affiliate Swan Hellenic haslaunched its new-look 2011 summer brochurewhich includes a host of exciting freshdestinations and cruises.

These included Old Master paintings, sculpture, furniture, jewellery and fine bindings. In short, Victoria and Albert were as passionate about art as they were about each other. They viewed their roles as patrons of the arts as being part of the public duties of the monarchy. Buckingham Palace was known as 'the headquarters of taste'. They also made important changes at Windsor Castle and added three other distinctive royal residences, Balmoral Castle, Osborne House and Sandringham House. They played a pivotal role with the ground-breaking Great Exhibition of 1851, were important patrons of early photography and also produced their own art -paintings, drawings and etchings.Judy Rudoe lecture - last chance to book your placeReaders are advised that as this issue of the Reviewwent to press there were still some tickets left for NADFAS-accredited lecturer JudyRudoe's lecture at the British Museum (seespring Review, page 9).
