Around the base of the George Washington statue in front of the museum are statues of animals found in the American wild. As with the lions of Trafalgar Square in London, we climb right up with them for a shot.
Ready to go find Art!
Erin and Bekah admiring European art from 1100-1500.
The display of Arms and Armor was very interesting.
Enthralled by late 19th Century to early 20th Century European masterpieces.
Our unfamiliarity with ancient Asian art does not diminish our appreciation for its beauty. Bekah here admires antique scent bottles, as lovely as the fragrances they once held.
Thomas Eakins, 1844-1916, one of America's few indisputably great painters, and from Philadelphia, so a whole section of the American Art wing was dedicated to his work.

Van Gogh... just soak it in...
