Yale Center for British Art

Date night with the hubby took us to the Yale Center for British Art. Being a new employee of Yale, and an art lover, it was high time we made the (socially distanced and well masked) visit earlier this year. As a family, we've been to the Yale University Art Gallery a handful of times, but I can't believe I have lived in CT for 10 years and hadn't visited YCBA yet. What treasures were in store! 

I suppose it is no surprise, since the British love their horses!

The collection of George Stubbs' work was particularly impressive. It's no surprise my 2021 Breyerfest diorama entry was based on his famous work, Horse Affrighted at a Lion.

(those paintings are HUGE)

Even more amazing equines (and dogs) from a variety of Brish artists!

If you are ever in New Haven, be sure to check out both museums. They are conveniently located across the street from each other. You will not be disappointed.
