About National Gallery of Art

The National Gallery of Art, located at the western level of the US Capitol, consists of two distinctly different buildings, one in the west, a neoclassical building with ancient Greek style, and one east in a geometric building of modernism. The two museums contain works of art from the Middle Ages to the present, unique architecture and rich and precious collections, giving the museum a unique style.

    There are Da & Vinci's Ginevra & Debenchi, Raphael's Notre Dame, Van Eyre's Notre Dame Receipt, and other classical European artists including Friar Angelico, Pietro &, Della &, Francesca, Berlini, Rembrandt, Manet and Monet. Due to the itinerary plan, we only stayed in the West Pavilion for two hours. The East Pavilion had no time to enter at all and left regrettably. During this period, while watching and taking pictures, about dozens of collections were taken with mobile phones. Compared with tens of thousands of collections, these photographs are like a drop in the ocean. There are many treasures that can't even be seen in time. It is strongly recommended that you should preview the history of Western art before going to the museum, and then get a brief introduction of the collection in Chinese, which will be very helpful for your visit.

    Every collection in the National Gallery of Art has its profound historical background and cultural presentation. Two of the paintings must be seen when they are collected. One is a portrait of Leonardo Da Vinci and the other is a self-portrait of Van Gogh. This portrait was created by Leonardo Da Vinci at the age of 22. It is a portrait of a 16-year-old Florentine married to an official who is twice her age. This treasure is one of the 19 existing works of Leonardo Da Vinci in the world.

    The National Gallery of Art is a free art gallery. The whole building is the presentation of art. It makes people walk towards it unconsciously. The museum is very large, so you can spend more than half a day walking slowly. It's a well-known Museum of culture and art in Washington. Children will love it. It's worth visiting. Located on the Western steps of the U.S. Capitol Building, it consists of two buildings with different styles. One is a neoclassical building with ancient Greek style in the West and the other is a geometric building with modernism in the east. As an artistic idiot, I like the National Gallery of Art in Washington. Museum is free, there are Chinese and English Audio Guide rentable, and no money (but the content of Chinese guide is relatively small, English is good or direct listening to English guide). If time is not enough, you can take a map before entering the museum, which works are clearly marked. My favorite museum is spacious and cozy. There aren't many people. It has a proper rhythm. You can see the people who take a nap on the sofa, the people who copy the easel, and the teachers who take the students to lecture. It looks like a sister who studies art stops long before a painting. Whoa, you all have the look of my favorite museum! _______ Then I don't know how to draw this kind of thing. I'd better choose some exhibits that I like.

    It's especially worth two whole days of fine-tuning. All of them are world-class famous paintings. Each painting contains rich stories, which are interesting. And each painting is vivid and vivid. It is the first time to see a national treasure-class painting face to face. It is very shocking. The picture is deep and lifelike. Even the hair can be drawn. It has a three-dimensional sense. It feels better than photography. Besides paintings, there are also exhibitions of sculptures and classical furniture. The exhibition hall is very atmospheric, magnificent and elegant.

    It takes three to five hours to finish. We only spent two hours shopping and closed at 5:30 p.m. The exhibition here is pleasant to the eye. If we have enough time and immerse ourselves in such a palace of art, we can get to know the painters one by one and appreciate the masterpieces one by one, which is tantamount to reading a vivid history of Western art. The treasure of the town hall is Leonardo Da Vinci's painting Ginevra De Benci. This is the only Da Vinci painting in the United States. It's in Hall Six. The picture has no railings, no glass, and can be viewed closely. I marveled at the sheen of the curly hair. And as soon as I got to the Impressionist showroom, I began to close the showroom. Watching Monet's Woman with an Umbrella, it's a pity that he can't get close to it. So remember to close at 5:30 p.m. and make sure you plan your trip.

    The National Gallery of Art in the United States, free of charge, can not enter at 5:30 p.m. to enter security checks, if there is a backpack, one-sided back, which is quite large, there are several floors, the biggest bright spot is the classical art here, you can see the real Van Gogh Monet, the most surprising is to see Van Gogh self-portrait, as well as Napoleon's portrait, of course, the first floor. The sculpture can not be missed, it is really quite beautiful. The art of sculpture is subdued to the veil. If you have time, you can soak for a whole day, but because the time is relatively short, you will go out in about an hour.

    [Eastern Gallery of the Art Gallery]: For those of me who have no artistic cell, going to the Art Gallery is only for B. But I'm really interested in visiting the National Gallery of Art in Washington this time, just because I'm interested in having a few authentic works stored in this gallery, since I can't see them without addiction. Dongguan's modern art is not very interesting and most people don't understand it. But of course, we should have a good look at Dongguan's ingenious building with modern art design sense. Its designer is Bei Jinming from Guangzhou.

    The West Pavilion is too big and has too many collections. It has no plans and no time to go through it. It rushes to several areas it wants to see. The most exciting thing is to see P1! This is my favorite Monet and my favorite Impressionist work! I can hardly believe it when I hear that the works here are authentic without explanation. And Van Gogh!

    In addition to a huge animated sculpture hanging in the center of the Eastern Gallery, there is a dynamic sculpture of Calder in the whole exhibition hall. It is a game of motion and quiet, light and shadow that makes people unconsciously hold their breath and gaze up.
