This beautiful seventeenth-century ring enamelled with flowers and mounted with a cameo of Elizabeth I has been gifted to the Victoria and Albert Museum by Nicholas Snowman OBE through Art Fund.

The miniature carved likeness of Elizabeth I is a fine example of the cameo portraits worn by the Queen’s courtiers as a sign of their taste, patriotism and proximity to the monarch. [ Bit.ly Link ]

This #MothersDay, consider a gift that lasts. Flowers will wilt and chocolates don't usually hang around very long, but a #NationalArtPass opens up a world of art for a year.

German painter Anselm Kiefer was born #onthisday in 1945. Palette, 1981, was #ArtFunded in 2008 for Tate and National Galleries of Scotland and depicts a traditional artist’s palette suspended between two strands of burning rope. The palette motif recurs in many of Kiefer's paintings and he has said that it represents the idea of the artist connecting heaven and earth.
