Maybe I was expecting too much after enjoying the Louvre in Paris and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia, among other museums. This was billed as a Rubens and Gainsborough exhibition. There was one of one artist and two of another. :o(

For a mid-size Southern city, Huntsville has a respectable art community. The Huntsville Museum of Art contains a core of quite respectable permanent exhibits. The temporary "on loan" exhibitions are very nice. This is well worth a visit for the out of town guest who...More
