I walked the length and breadth of the museum, to find the room with the painting I wanted to see. . .
I sat in front of the painting and admired it and thought about day dreaming; to get to the room with the painting, I had to walk thru a hall of sculpture. . .
before walking thru the scultpure hall, I walked thru a gallery of glass, both very very old and quite modern pieces. . .
the museum is full of beautifully appointed rooms, galleries and halls, each themselves filled with objects of beauty; and - as importantly - it also has a rather fab coffee shop, in which I had a lovely break; and - similarly important - a rather wonderful gift shop. . .
