Fascinating.

But one of the works that Alice managed to snatch up years ago is probably familiar to most former U.S. public school students:









Gilbert Stuart- George Washington, 1797 [unfinished].

I just visited this museum over the holidays and it is very impressive. Not only does it have some terrific art, but the architecture is amazing. I went with a friend who is a structural engineer and she said that it was one the best buildings she had ever seen.
