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 
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)


Fra Angelico and Fra Filippo Lippi 

Madonna Enthroned with Saints and Angels


Agnolo Gaddi

Daniel in the Lions' Den (1614/1616)


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....
