Children’s Works Inspired by “A Roman Triumph”

This year (7th June – 24th September 2017) in the National Gallery in London you can see  the “Take One Picture” exhibition that shows children’s works inspired by Rubens’ “A Roman Triumph”.

It is interesting to see how children interpreted many objects from the Ancient world, for example Roman classical buildings, temples, columns, decorative designs, musical instruments,  animals. The results of their work are amazing! 🙂
