Mary Rose Cook's notebook

The public parts of my notebook.

My homepage.

National Gallery, Washington DC

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.
