The UK art world is still mourning the tragic death of Moira Gemmill, former head of design at The Victoria and Albert Museum, who passed away last week after being hit by a truck while bicycling to work. At the time of her passing, the 55-year-old had recently become the Royal Collection Trust’s director of capital programs, purportedly having been selected for the post by the Queen herself.

Colour was intrinsic to ancient ideas of beauty…You can see this wonderful object in our exhibition #DefiningBeauty, until 5 July 2015.”
