  • The works of art are stunning. They are lit beautifully. The gallery wasn't crowded and there is plenty of space. You can get close to the paintings and no one bothers you. Highly recommend.
  • The mix of art here is amazing! Galleries are setup with well known artists and lesser-known {at least by me), and they sit side by side with the greater works. They both show the genius of the more well known artists, and how they exemplified the genre by examining the other works and comparing. Classic genres, including expressionism and realism. Some photograph-equivelent works that are particularly impressive.
