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.

For sculptor FAZ, expression has always gone through matter. Language could not find a better echo than in form. As a child, she learned sculpture watching women sculptors from another age, who used to come to the family house in the summertime, in the heart of Provence. These sculptors were her mother’s “dear friends”, from Holland and Britain, who liked to work the earth, stone, and the most precious materials.
In her teens, FAZ’s profound aspiration was to study Fine Arts, wishing this passion could shape into an artistic evolution. Now a mature woman, FAZ takes up sculpture again, without compromise: she devotes all her energy, most of her time to her art and craft. Research, drawing, learning and exploring the inner self, her sculptures are her mirror image.
Here are some of her pieces…

On a trip to the National Gallery of Art last week in Washington, D.C., I had the pleasure of viewing so many amazing pieces of famous artworks, I felt like a kid in a candy store. My sweet tooth for art was surely satisfied and my camera was clicking away so I would be able to share the experience and show you some of the works I had seen.
Before I entered the National Gallery, I quickly made my way through the National Sculpture Garden and snapped this sculpture, Rabbit Thinker (Barry Flanagan). It began to rain, so unfortunately I did not get a change to meander here.
Once inside the West building I entered into the Chester Dale Collection.
