Wow. The impressionist tour continues with a special exhibit at the National Gallery in London hosting a private collection of 90 different impressionist works. Because it was a private collection, photos weren’t allowed, and it was generally too dark for my spyglasses to work.

K likes the train paintings.  Money here and a french train station

We stopped mid-gallery for a lunch of cheese. 5 different type of cheeses certainly help give us energy for more museum going.

If you've got a multi-million dollar painting, you can't just use a $20 frame from target.  You need a classy frame.

They even had a special exhibition on the differing type of frames that paintings are hung with. Surprisingly neat, and just the right size at one small room.
