The National Gallery of London is close to Big Ben. Within the walking range, it takes about 15 minutes to walk from the subway station west minister to the National Gallery of London. The gallery is surrounded by a square. The front of the gallery is a high cylindrical pole, the width of the square is narrow, the four corners of the bottom are four giant lions. There are many people in the square, which is located outside the gallery gate. Closer to here are ghost-dressers, who wear ghost faces, wear ghost clothes and can't land on their feet. The gallery is free to visit, but there is a donation box at the entrance, which says please donate 5 yuan (pound sterling), but most people donate nothing. Inside the gallery are magnificent, mostly paintings, mostly oil paintings. Most of them are about the story of Jesus'suffering and the relationship between King and God. Most of them are dressed in very few clothes. A few of them are large-scale paintings reflecting people's lives. People hold chickens, ducks and fish in their hands. There are many places to visit in the gallery, which are worth visiting. London's price is this. It's so high that it's rare to have a free visit. You must go and see it.

We went into the free National Gallery for a visit. There are a lot of visitors to the National Gallery. Tickets are free, but the paper-based presentation maps are marked with a payment of 1. It's located in a TV screen where the introduction is concentrated. It's written in many languages, including Chinese. The content is very simple, mainly in the library map. No one collects money, and if you need to pay to the coin box after you pick it up, this model was also rare before. On the spot, many tourists picked up the brochure and saw the words marked with fees. Most of them took the initiative to put the brochure back in its original place. Later, it was found that there are many ways of self-consciousness like this in various parts of Britain, which is really a test of people's quality requirements. There are toll-paying voice guides in the gallery, and there are also Chinese ones, because we have limited time, so there is no rent. We started our visit at a loss in this large gallery. Walking to the exhibition hall on the third floor, there are various paintings hanging on the walls of the exhibition rooms arranged in chronological order. These are art treasures of human history. According to the introduction materials downloaded before the trip, we focused on several masterpieces called "the treasure of the town hall". These include : The Entombment of Michelangelo in Exhibition Room 8; "Self Portrait of Age of 34 in Exhibition Room 24; "The Water-Lily Pond in Monet in Exhibition Room 43; "Sunflowers in Exhibition Room 45; "The Virgin of the Rocks in Exhibition Room 57;" The Virgin of the Rocks in Exhibition Room 58. Botticelli's Venus and Mars; Raphael's The Pink Virgin in Room 60 (The Madonna of the Pinks). Because there is a clear number of exhibition room location, so it is easy to find, while looking for the process of viewing the macro scene in the gallery. It is the only way for us to be blind in art and to visit such an art temple on such a pedestrian basis. At the end of the tour, we stood on the balcony of the second floor of the gallery for a long time, enjoyed the macro view of Trafalgar Square and the art performances of the downstairs stalls, where we could also overlook the eye-catching Big Ben. That's the destination of our follow-up tour.

Coming out of the British Museum, he went on to the National Gallery, which was founded in 1824 on Trafalgar Square. There are a group of middle-aged and elderly volunteers wearing pink T-shirts. They are very warm and lovely. They speak English with a pure English accent. They are very good at listening and patiently answer the puzzled questions of tourists. Founded in 1824, the National Gallery of Art, also known as the National Gallery, has a collection of 6 and a half centuries of works of European painting history. Nearly 2300 pieces of fine arts from the 13th to 19th centuries, including masterpieces such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael, are among them. - Leonardo Da Vinci "Notre Dame of the Rocks" 1506 - "There are two paintings. The first one is at the Louvre in Paris, and the second one is here. The theme is that John the Baptist worshipped Christ in front of the Virgin Mary and the angels, sitting in the secluded and mysterious rock scenery, and the light words and mists gradually became thick and dim, showing an infinite hazy picture. The whole picture is like a distant dream, full of poetic warmth, peace and elegance. In 1434, Van Eyck was the first founder of Western oil painting techniques. The work highly restores the clothes and living environment of the characters at that time, and realism makes the Northern School different from the Italian passionate aestheticism. In the early 14th century, painters knew how to use perspective. There were couples'shadows in the mirrors. Spanish painter Venus Gates "Venus in front of the mirror" 1647 - "extremely rare in Spain in the 17th century with strict religion - "Titian "Dionysus and Ariadne" 1520 - "the second generation of Venetian painters, the goddess in the color mythology painted as lustful secular women. Titian lived to the age of 90. His works were numerous and his fame and fortune were double. One of several nude portraits, Venus and Cupid the little god of love, put the secular beauty in mythological stories. Monet "water lily" 1895 - "The first painting of water lily in pond and Japanese bridge by French Impressionist Master, Master Ray dreamed of building a water garden for his painting - "Van Gogh "Sunflower 1888" 1888 - "Dutch Impressionist Master, this painting is the author's favorite work, and also the most popular still life painting in art history. Supply material. The "Water and Reflected Garden" built in 1983 is very similar to the garden in Japanese prints. William Turner "the disintegrated warship Dreadnought" 1839 "One of Britain's greatest works, the British painter Turner is famous for depicting the sea's shadows, colors and changes in the air, with exquisite techniques. After spending four hours in the National Gallery, I still have selective appreciation of representative fine paintings. London is free of charge for visiting art museums, which are very few in the world's major cities. For the popularization of culture and art, the London Municipal Government has done a good job.

National Gallery is still the same, free admission, just a few more donation boxes than before, placed in the main roads, visitors can invest money at any time. I was very happy to see that my favorite Ben Matu was still hanging in the old place. As soon as I opened the door of the hall, I saw that it was about to leap forward. There are also some Van Gogh, Picasso's authenticity, all priceless treasures are gathered in dozens of square meters, people feel incredible, and even began to doubt, this can not be true!!! In fact, I really went to talk to the staff patrolling the museum and asked them how to ensure their safety and protection from intentional or unintentional damage by many visitors. There is only one rope, one foot above the ground, standing between the painting and the visitors, but if you bend down and move forward, you can almost paste the picture on it. Occasionally, some people take pictures with flashlights. These breaths will inevitably have an impact on them. The staff told me that there was no way. In order for art lovers to really have close contact with these treasures, the gallery could only do its best to protect them, but it was impossible to close the paintings and cover them with glass frames or something. That would be a bad experience to visit. So every exhibition hall is patrolled, problems are found at any time, and inappropriate behavior is stopped at any time. Compared with the vast visitors to the British Museum, the exhibition experience of the National Gallery of Art is a clear stream. It can stay, stand, sit, side, near and far in the same space as its favorite paintings, and appreciate it carefully from all angles.

When I first went to London, I missed it because of the time constraints. I lived near Trafalgar Square this time. I arranged a half-day visit, but it was still not enough time. I recommend that you go to the commodity department to buy a Book "Master Paintings". This book is divided into four stages for the collection of the gallery according to the time. Each stage talks about the representative works, as well as the painting calendar. The introduction of historical background, so that visitors can better appreciate; we rented an interpreter, according to each hint to listen to the explanation; the front of the famous paintings is crowded, squeezing into the photography is not easy; the most praised is that adults rent an interpreter, children can provide free, but also give children a piece of paper, with room labels and pictures, suitable for children to enjoy, my son's painting. His enthusiasm is very high. He has been interested in seeing paintings with us in the art gallery all morning. One of the paintings has been exhibited abroad. He also decided to regret that these details are really worth studying in the domestic exhibition halls, and the children have really gained a lot. Now when he comes home to read, he knows which painting he has heard about. The impression is that Friday evening closes late. If you have enough time in London and are interested in fine arts, you can go this day and see more hours. Too many world famous paintings and spiritual feasts are worth visiting.
