I’m not much of an Art Gallery fan, truth be told. I mostly use museums like this for speed walking.
But free of charge I quite enjoyed this one.
The special exhibition was Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting. I’d never before paid any attention to Vermeer. But now agree he was a genius.
Normally the lives of rich, dead white Europeans bores me to tears. But Vermeer and those he inspired were really on to something. Daily life. Quiet scenes unfolding in private household spaces.
I’d definitely visit the National Gallery again in future as I did not nearly see all of the exhibits. Not even by speed walking.
