National Gallery of Art

I created a massive list of museums and sites for my zia to choose from. I shouldn't have been surprised to hear she wanted to visit the National Gallery of Art. The Dying Gaul was on loan from none other than ROME. This Ancient Roman Masterpiece dates back to the first century CE and it hasn't left Rome since 1797, when it was moved to the Louvre in Paris. It wasn't the only beautiful work of art we saw. Below you will find some of my favorites, including Vincent van Gogh's Green Wheat Fields. Impressionism is strikingly beautiful to me. Enjoy!

Edgar Degas, 1878, Little Dancer Aged Fourteen

Vincent van Gogh, Green Wheat Fields

George Stubbs, 1780, White Poodle in a Punt

Vincent van Gogh, 1890, Roses

James McNeill Whistler, 1862 Symphony in White, No. 1: The White Girl 

Gerrit van Honthorst, 1623, The Concert

Stuart Gilbert, 1795, George Washington Self Portrait

Augustus Saint-Gaudens, 1883, Tell It with Pride: The 54th Massachusetts Regiment
