Gallery 83 at the National Gallery of Art – Where Vincent Van Gogh’s Blue Self-Portrait Lives + Degas & Gauguin

Tomorrow, I am going to Washington DC to spend some time in one of my favorite rooms, Gallery 83. That is where Vincent Van Gogh’s Blue Portrait lives, as well as some of his other paintings, too. There are also several Degas and Gauguin paintings in that room. Without a doubt, my favorite era of art history is the 19th century, but my very favorite painter is Vincent Van Gogh. I never see enough of him. If I were forced to stay in only one room of the National Gallery of Art, I would choose Gallery 83. It has many of my favorite of the Gallery’s paintings.
