Next we visited the OAS. This is a organization of the states of North and South America.
Next, is one of the American Red Cross Buildings.
Right next door, is the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
In the entry is an exhibit by Clarie Healy. These really interesting works were all done with LEGOS. They represent photos of the Spaceship Challenger that exploded.
This is the picture of Washington that is on the front of all one dollar bills.
This gigantic painting, it stood like 30' long and 20' tall and Covered a whole wall. It was of the House of Representatives and by Samuel Morse in 1822. The artist later invented Morse Code.
Famous photo called Niagra
John Argent was the most famous portrait painter of his day.
There was a lot of MODERN ART. I don't understand it, but I look at it-hoping I'll begin to appreciate it. So far that has not happened.
This is a Picasso
This is a Renior- one of favorite painters.
This is a self-portrait of Rembrant
This room was just unbelievably ornate. You had to see it close up to believe it. The story here is that a William Clark who owned the place in 1904 purchased this room for his wife.
The next section was bronzes. Very beautiful
A very famous Remington- OFF THE RANGE. This piece was considered amazing because only 4 feet of all the horses 16 are on the ground. Very difficult for bronze work.
Now come the really confusing ones.
