The State Hermitage Museum, in St. Petersburg, Russia, is the largest art museum in the world, with more than three million works of art in 10 buildings. While visiting on a tour from the Viking Surkov, during our August holiday with Viking River Cruises, my husband was able to get only a small taste of the riches.
Despite seeing only a small part of the collection, Dick managed, of course, to give me hundreds of pictures from that day. In a future post, I will try to show you some of the paintings but, for now, here's one by an artist many people will recognize, and a photo of a few other paintings.
