  3. Someone has a sense of humor,
    the painting placement of the battlefield breast feeding baby next to its expiring father...and who looks on, across in the other painting.

  4. What a treat, thank you.
    I hope you went out to lunch after this gallery.

  5. Oh the ECSTASY and then the agony! The ecstasy being a full FEAST of brilliant British art, and then the agony of not knowing who painted what. Heavens! Except for a couple of delightful Pollards, there are no nameplates to identify the other artists behind their remarkable work. Even so, the joy of seeing this glorious art up and down and all along a very lengthy hall far outweighs the agony. Thank you for this virtual transport to the Motherland, where the beautiful and the good never fail to lift our spirits.

    2. Actually I recall there was a booklet or info sheet at the Long Gallery that identified all the paintings by name and artist. Of course, they printed it all in very small letters with very small pictures of each painting!

  7. Visited the beautiful Yale British Art Center a couple of weeks ago. It did not disappoint with its 3 floors of amazing art. Animal lovers will especially enjoy all the beautiful pictures. Had lunch at the Study (a boutique hotel) in New Haven that was fantastically delicious. Next time we visit, we will stay there too!

    1. I'm sure Yale would be happy to entertain serious bids - have at it!

    2. Probably. As soon as the British Museum returns all the items taken from "the colonies" when Britain was an Empire - it's an important part of other people's history:)
