The Beardsley exhibition at Tate Britain in London is reopening today.

The once in a lifetime major exhibition includes work undertaken by the artist when he lived in Boscombe and Bournemouth.

The show was open for only a very short time in March due to the virus and should have closed in May. The closing date is now Sunday 20 September. Timed tickets must be booked in advance.

The skeleton of a whale displayed on Boscombe Pier. Beardsley had seen the whale washed up on the beach east of the pier in January 1897. The picture gives an idea of the sandy nature of the cliff at the entrance to Boscombe Chine known to the artist when he lived in Sea Road.
