And then we walked into the Impressionism exhibit. I was blown away. They had an impressive collection of Monet's, including a Waterlily!
And the following painting, titled La Pointe de la Heve, Sainte-Adresse, is quite unlike any other Monet I've seen. It has much more detail, and the colors aren't as vibrant. It is remarkable, and shows his skill, and evolution, as a painter. He was only twenty-four at the time.
There was another of Degas' ballerinas, which are always so beautiful. I love the way he did their skirts; they are always in such contrast to the rest of the painting. There was also a pastel piece by Degas.
After the museum we wandered around the area for a while, happening upon some great signage, the Chinatown area, and a greatly lit up building.
