Tate and The National Galleries

On Wednesday, March 13th, We went to the Tate Modern, The National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery. The Tate Modern was really cool to see in real life after learning about all the installations. I really liked the Jenny Holzer’s piece about provoking strong responses. It had a lot of interesting quotes that really made me think. At the National Portrait Gallery I really liked the portraits of Henry VIII and Anne Boelyn and Queen Elizabeth I. My ancestry goes back to them so it was cool to see. In the National Gallery I really liked seeing Leonardo Da Vinci’s Virgin of the Rocks and some of his sketches next to it. His way of painting is like no other painter it’s really amazing. Overall these past few days have been really interesting with seeing all this really thought provoking art.
