Let me say that I have visited many of the great Art Museums in Europe and the US and in comparison the National Gallery just falls short for me. The paintings are difficult to locate because the gallery doesn’t seem to have a clean flow from one style or period to another but a hodgepodge of rooms going in many different directions.In addition the lighting didn’t seem to show the paintings off to full advantage. My biggest disappointment was that many of the most famous paintings had been removed. and placed in a special exhibition that was charged a fee to seeor out on tour.I don’t have a problem with paying to see a special exhibition of paintings on tour but to make the exhibition with your own paintings, especially the most popular ones is plain greedy and stupid. It was my wife and I only real disappointment in London and I really usually love art museums.
