This past Saturday I visited the New Orleans Museum of Art which hosted some very excellent Italian, French and American galleries. Normally I’d write up and compose a huge review, going into detail about each and every work which sparked my interest, but I no longer feel I’m capable of this task, at least not to the extent I’d like to take it, as it would require way more time than I'm willing to devote. Instead I’ll provide a simple list of notable works and mark in bold those which made an impression on me.
