It may be of interest that the University of East Anglia (UEA) currently has an exhibition on called "Masterpieces - Art & East Anglia" at its Sainsbury Centre, Norwich. Amongst the many superb local artworks are a number of exhibits relating to the county's most famous son: On loan from the National Portrait Gallery is Sir William Beechey's 1800 portrait; there is a unique model of HMS Victory made entirely from copper recovered from the ship and the Edward Hodges Baily bust of Nelson from the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. The exhibition is on now until the 24th February 2014. A must for lovers of Nelson and his beloved Norfolk.

Many thanks for the heads up, Raldis. Sadly, I'm too preoccupied with domestic matters to venture as far as Norfolk, but perhaps Torfrida, who's Norfolk based, might drop in to see it and give us a report?
