Bear in mind, as I said in part 2, all this art was collected by the father of my blog friend, Naomi, and donated to the Smithsonian. She grew up with much of what you see here in her home and grounds. How blessed she was to be able to see art like this every day!! Naomi, I wanted to get a long shot of the full museum, but traffic kept me from being able.

Some wonderful photo's, Judy---I thank you for sharing them......There are some pieces I don't recognize----I'm sure they are additions to the collection, since my father's death in 1981. And, the fact is, I didn't really grow up with all the Art my father donated---my parents separated and then divorced in 1945-----I visited all his different homes all through the years, but never stayed at any of his homes for more than a week at a time. I certainly got to see a lot of the Art over the years, but never really lived around it, except for those rare visits, and the occasional lunch or dinner or Birthday celebrations. The Art in our home before my parents split up was quite different than after they split up. My father always collected, but his view widened quite a bit after 1943-44. And he began to collect more contemporary Art in the mid 1940's, and that continued throughout his lifetime, until he died. Art truly was his great great Passion!
