Looking for Butterflies at The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC
Usually when I visit large museums I look first for any print exhibits since I am a printmaker. Then I become overwhelmed by all of the other work and want to see everything! So lately, to have a focus and fun, I've decided to pick an object and look for it in the works. Since I have been painting butterflies, I decided to look for them. I thought a perfect place to start would be 1600-1800 still life paintings. I love the paintings, the details, so full of nature in the arrangements. I found butterflies here!
Can you find them?
