At The National Gallery of Art

In addition to the Wyeth exhibition, and the Degas/Cassatt, I strolled though parts of the permanent collection at The National Gallery of Art and it was very cool to see many famous paintings that I am so familiar with just from being alive in the culture. I had never seen the grand portrait of Napoleon, and am not sure if I'd seen The White Girl before (I actually think I may have seen the latter at some point in my life). It was lovely spending time in this museum.

the met has shown this before--either they lent it to the gallery or vice versa--i love it.

Yes, the more I think of it, the more sure I am that I've seen it.
