Colonel Harland Sanders was born today in 1890.
So to mark the occasion, here's a tasty morsel from the collection...
There is a serious side to this. If you have a look at the Hodgkins painting in our Collection Online, you'll see the new CATEGORIES area. While we are closed we are busy adding these descriptive labels - much like subject headings in a library catalogue - so that you can find works according to what they are about, rather than just by the name of the artist or by the title they have been given.
It's early days, so not everything has these tags yet, but already some interesting sets of works have emerged which have little in common except their shared depiction of, say, trees, or children, or snow, or, as in this case, birds.
The vocabulary we are using is the industry standard Getty Art and Architetcure thesaurus.
