On the 20th November we went to the London national gallery, we left at 7:30 and came back at 5:25 the journey was about 2 and a half hours long.  We went to see The Men At The Docks by George Bellows. The year group split int two groups and we both saw different paintings but we all saw The Men At The Docks.

In my opinion  the most interesting painting is Het Steen In The Early Morning by Peter Paul Rubens, because there is so much going on so there is a lot to look and think about. The Grand house is peters house and this meant to be a celebration picture.  Sadly, his wife died but he got marred again and bought that house so this painting was never meant to be for the museum.

The Men At  The Docks  was similar to what i imaged but it was more shiny and i did not expect it to be mixed with oil instead of water. It was  bigger then i expected and because it was bigger the details looked more grand.It looked a lot better in real life than on a screen of a TV / computer/ iPad.

My favorite part of the trip was walking through to the gift shop because i saw loads of different pictures some grusem some massive but all great. Discussing them with my friends was just as amazing so i wish we had more time at the gallery.
