Gypsy Woman with Baby, by Amedeo Modigliani, 1919
The National Gallery of Art (NGA) is one of the best museums in the world. It is probably my place to visit in Washington, D.C. Incredible art everywhere - wow - what a great collection of masterpieces in a lovely setting.
I visited the NGA at the conclusion of my obligatory annual family visit to western PA in October 2011. What amazes me is that for the first half of my life I knew absolutely nothing about art (except for my velvet paining of the dogs playing poker!) and now I appreciate it so much.
This is definitely a must see destination in D.C. - please check it out and support the arts!
