Our Second Visit to the National Gallery of Art





This is one of the most beautiful art museums that I have ever visited. I could come back again and again to this place. Especially when you walk in and see this.....





Oh my goodness!!! This was the Ames-Haskell Azalea Collection.






I mean honestly, do I need to say more!










I did do some walking around... not much because I wanted to see this the whole time. 








Ginevra de' Benci 
by 
Leonardo Da Vinci 


The only painting by Leonardo in the entire United States.







I have no idea what this is but I loved it!






The Adoration of the Magi (1440/1460)

by 

Fra Angelico and Fra Filippo Lippi 









Madonna Enthroned with Saints and Angels

by 

Agnolo Gaddi






Daniel in the Lions' Den (1614/1616)

by 

Sir Peter Paul Rubens







Place du Carrousel, Paris
by Camille Pissarro

I realized that I like french paintings. Surprise.....








Place du Carrousel, Paris (1900)

In the Forest (1874)

by Narcisse Diaz De La Pena














Just beautiful....














If I lived in D.C. I would probably come here a few times a month. Just to walk around and enjoy the rooms. So pretty.... If you missed our first visit you may read it here.



Thanks for reading....
