Tate Britain

This weekend I visited another art museum, and as per usual I'm posting my favorite paintings.  This museum had few rooms that I enjoyed, but it also had quite a bit of modern art, which I really don't enjoy.  But I did discover a painting or two that I really really liked, so definitely worth it in the end.  I also visited Apsley House, where the Duke of Wellington lived.  It was basically a collection of all of the fancy presents people gave him when he defeated Napoleon.  I'm not going to lie, probably because of my long-standing fascination with Napoleon, I wasn't that impressed.  But I did get to see some of the original "wellies", so that was cool.  I couldn't take any pics inside, so these are ones I found on the interwebs:
