We had the pleasure of visiting the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. last week and I took many photos of the paintings I came across in order to share it with you on Gilbert Musings. Here is part one of our trip to National Gallery of Art which was posted a few days ago and now it’s time for part two (of a three part series), continuing on where we left off with the Dutch Painters.

Quentin Massys – Ill-Matched Lovers c. 1520/25

Mary, Queen of Heaven – Master of the Saint Lucy Legend c. 1485/1500

Jan Weenix – Still Life with Swan and Game before a Country Estate 1685

Saint George and the Dragon, English Early Fifteen Century (polychromed alabaster) c. 1375/1420

Heading over to the East building, to the Modern Art section…

This Salvador Dalí “Last Supper” was tucked in a corner near the elevator, second floor in the East Building

Sacrament of the Last Supper??? I’m obsessed with St George and the Dragon, and I’d missed this piece when I visited! Thanks for the report!!

That Mondrian composition is probably one of the most enthralling visual experiences I have ever had.
