Art Treasures

I'm going back in time to repost blogs from my past.
This one appeared three years ago today.

I visited the National Gallery of Art East Wing last Friday, a Vantage House trip.  Look back one day to see the architecture of this building.  Today I will feature some of the art work.

This is from the early 20th Century by George Bellows.





Other scenes of American life in the early century.







Striking paintings of life more than 100 years ago.

Great oil paintings. A talented artist. I went back to check on the building and found the architecture very modern.

Hi Betsy... The paintings are truly timeless --and paintings we all can enjoy no matter what age we are. Thanks for sharing.

I am yearning for life as it was --and not as it is now... Our ancestors did so much to give us the freedoms we have been enjoying. However, these freedoms are being challenged now --and our country is truly in a mess. God Help us ALL.

Hugs,
Betsy
