We started our day walking quiet Saturday streets to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, a museum which celebrates women artists who are often ignored in other collections. It was such a delight to see Frida Kahlo’s ‘Self Portrait dedicated to Leon Trotsky’
From there we moved on to more of The Smithsonian, this time the American Arts Museum. One thing we especially love about these museums is how the visitor is encouraged to take photos, to get close to the paintings to really appreciate detail. At home we are kept away by rope barriers and an alarm sounds if you dare to get close enough to see brushstrokes.
