A Visit to the Yale University Art Gallery


The Yale University Art Gallery lies approximately an hour-and-a-half outside of New York City. The Gallery features a wide range of ancient artifacts, sculptures, and paintings, including some of the most famous works of American painter John Trumbull. Admission is free.

Some select photos from a recent visit to the Gallery are below. Photos #4 and #5 were from the Leonardo: Discoveries from Verrocchio’s Studio exhibition. Photo #6 is from the Manuel Neri: The Human Figure in Plaster and on Paper exhibition.
