The Yale Center for British Art









I so enjoyed ny visit to the Yale Center for British Art on Tuesday! It's a really well designed building with interior spaces that are a pleasure to wander through. The first 3 pics give you a feel for the interior, and the rest are my favorites from the collection. The Constables and the Turners were my absolute favorites. Enjoy!
