Rococo and Empire at the National Gallery of Art

This weekend we visited the National Gallery of Art so that my daughter could work on a research project. This is her favorite museum in Washington DC, and certainly one of my favorites too!  It is so large that despite numerous trips in the past, we've never had a chance to tour the main floor. We are usually there for my daughter's research projects which means we are upstairs immersed in all the wonderful paintings across the eras. I have done lots of my own historical clothing research looking at these paintings. This time though we ventured downstairs and discovered the Rococo Rooms! (swoon)

Of course we had to pay a visit to Napoleon while we were upstairs!
