Included in this post are some personal favorites from the East Building portion of the National Gallery in Washington, DC, which is currently undergoing some extensive repairs. I guess I'm more of a modern art type, finding myself spending far more time exploring this side of the place. I have a great appreciation for the classical works and styles, though in all honesty, I get bored quickly by that type of art, for the most part. To each their own I suppose, and I will say, there is currently an astoundingly good exhibit going on at the West side called Colorful Realm, Japanese Bird-and-flower paintings by Ito Jakuchu, which I'll post a little bit more about later this week. In the meantime, enjoy the art.
