INTRODUCTIONThe British museum has a variety of artwork that express different regions, themes, materials , and etc. The artwork I chose consist of sculptures, clay, and textile.

ART GALLERY LAYOUTAs a whole, all the art pieces are visually connected through lines. I chose all four portraits which exhibit similarities .The thematic connection of the three pieces involve women and one is symbolic for death. I would exhibit them in a gallery in the order of textiles and then sculptures.
