Visit to Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

The weekend after Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend and I went to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.  This time, we went to the American wing of the museum and saw late-19th century to early 20th century.  What is great about the Virginia Museum, or at least the part of the museum we saw, was that was that at least part of the works were from artists who were either born in the area or who had lived in the area at some point in their lives.  The artworks also ranged from light, impressionist-type paintings to more bright, abstract works and dark colors.  For your viewing pleasure, I’m posting some photographs, and for the ones who are really into it, the descriptions of the artwork.

Of course, these photos are only a fraction of my photos, and my photos are only a fraction of what we saw.  What we saw is only a tiny fraction of the museum! The great thing is that the permanent collections of the museum are free, and we have a lot more to see! For more pictures and more advice on what to do and see in Richmond, VA, comment, and I will be happy to talk and send more photos!
