Yesterday I enjoyed a wonderful visit to the National Gallery of Art with some of my students from the Southerlands.  There was 13 of us that made the trip to see the Picasso Drawings.

  No photography was allowed in that exhibit but this was the entrance poster so at least you can see what it was like.  The interesting thing was that there were probably about 50 pieces in the exhibit and probably half or more belonged to private collectors.  Really interesting.

After we finished seeing Picasso we wandered to the newly opened gallery of impressionist paintings….some of my favorites.

Paul Cezanne, French painter, 1839-1906. "The Artist's Father, Reading L'Evenement", oil, 1866.


Edouard Manet, French Painter, 1832-1883. "The Railway", oil, 1873.


Manet, "Masked Ball at the Opera", oil, 1873.


More to come tomorrow…
