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.
