NYC 2011 Page 3

We spent a lot of time in the European Art area of the collection, which is very large. The 1800s collection features a large number of French painters, because one of the major donors was particularly fond of those paintings.

You can't really appreciate Van Gogh until you see some of his works in person. Here is Paul about to make off with one of them...

I was extremely fond of the Irises painting.

One extremely large painting was The Horse Fair, with strong and accurately painted equines. Paul spent a great deal of time studying this painting.

I took this next picture, of Jean-Léon Gérôme's Before the Audience, for Jenn to admire. (The link provides a better view of the painting, actually.)
