The public parts of my notebook.
Lauren and I visited DC and we spent several hours in the National Gallery. My favourites:
Leonardo da Vinci, Ginevra de Benci
Raphael, The Alba Madonna
Raphael, Bindo Altoviti
Matteo di Giovanni, Madonna and Child with Saint Jerome, Saint Catherine of Alexandria and angels
Fra Filippo Lippi, Madonna with Child
Johannes Vermeer, Woman Holding a Balance
Pieter de Hooch, The Bedroom
One of the best de Hoochs I’ve ever seen. This reproduction really doesn’t capture the magic of the tiles and the uneven floor.
