Ottawa being the capitol of Canada has the Parliament buildings and other government buildings. From the pictures it looks a bit like Disneyland.
The museum not only had art by world famous artists, but it had some of the finest examples from these artists that I have seen in one museum. These work included art by Renoir, Matisse, Degas, Cezanne, Braque, Pissarro and Monet, It is not practical to include everything I saw so I ended up editing out the majority of the master's works since I felt that most of you have seen works by these artists many times before. They were breathtaking examples that deserve to be seen in person.
Several of you wrote to me to say how much you appreciated seeing the works by the Group of Seven so I included more of these works since they are less familiar artists. This museum had some great paintings by this noteworthy group.
The museum building was a work of art itself. It created a perfect setting to view art and it filtered the light and the views of the city beautifully.
Many of the individual galleries had a bold use of color on which to display the art. These rich colors played beautifully off the artwork and enhanced the works.
