I was uplifted when we turned into the area of the museum with paintings. Standing and looking at the intricate details of peoples work blew my mind. I value the fact that people from the past were able to put such gifts to use, making it a luxury to go and stand in front of their work hundreds of years later, analyzing and appreciating. Seeing original artwork that I had studied and remembered from elementary school nearly made me emotional.
I took many pictures, but here are a few.
Remember to appreciate history.
