National Gallery. Pictures only

With National Gallery closing down for three years for renovations, I was keen to visit it this winter. Here are some of the highlights from my visit.

  1. Three years is way too long for a museum, hope the renovations are justified. I haven’t been to the National Gallery in years. Hope to revisit it one day. I love Holbein, and that Chardin’s painting, The Young Teacher, is so sweet.

  2. I love the National. It’s big enough that it takes more than a day. I love the Leonardos they have and I remember that Rembrandt from my visit. Another visit is required!

  3. Three years is a long time to be closed. I enjoyed seeing what you shared here. I’ve not been, nor have I been to the National Portrait Gallery. Maybe I’ll get to both someday.
