The national gallery is another amazing museum that’s composed of several buildings. The modern, east building covers modern art. The classically styled west building houses art from before the turn of the 20th century. They were also having a retrospective for the American painter George Bellows. Unfortunately no photography was allowed. I loved the modern art building and the walkway of light that joined it to its western counterpart. The collection itself didn’t really interest me. I’ve yet to be inspired by much of the abstract and conceptual art from the 20th century with a few exceptions.
The collection of late 19th century art was the highlight of the collection for me.
