Clare’s Travel Diary

Sunday, 06 Nov 2005

Location: London, UK

MapWell today I have been to the Natural History Museum which was quite good.
I also went to the National Gallery which was definatley the hightlight. I saw The Virgin on the Rocks by Leonardo De Vinci, many of Van Gogh's work, some of Caravaggio's but nothing that caught my eye, Rembrandt's self portrait, Raphael, Michelangelo, Rubens, Botticelli etc.
I also discovered other great artists Gainsborough, Van Dyck and Canaletto. Canaletto painted many pictures of Venice.
There is a section within the gallery that has paintings as early as 1200. All very gold and religious.
Also walked around the rainy city of London. But its all fun!
