Smithsonian / National Gallery / Brooklyn Museum

It was my initial intent to provide full reviews of my recent visits to the Smithsonian, the National Gallery and the Brooklyn Museum, but after putting off this momentous task for the past couple weeks I realized that such an exercise was beyond my capacity, and I just don’t have the time or energy to compose a painstakingly thorough recount of each & every work which struck my interest.
