National Portrait Gallery

A very well curated gallery, cross street from Zaytinya. We pass by this museum hundred times till my daughter suggested. I regret for not going in sooner. We visited it two days in a row during our last 4-day trip.

Although it named Portrait but there are plenty history, as well as arts. At one corner is Irving Penn exhibition.

The courtyard is lovely to have a quick bit or read a book.

Girls rule. The window on the third floor, looking out to the National Archives. Helen Gurley Brown – the American version of Coco Chanel? The record setter: Katharine Hepburn and her four Oscars.
