Colour, Simplicity, Beauty @ The Wallace Collection

This will be one of my more memorable 
rainy afternoons in London. 
I visited the Wallace Collection, a national museum 
in an historic London town house. 
It has been many years since I wandered freely 
about a museum and it was absolutely delightful.  
I was drawn to these paintings for their colour, 
simplicity and beauty.
