Painting of a Painting

Walking through the National Gallery I stumbled upon a woman painting. She stood in front of Poussin’s The Finding of Moses with her easel, canvas and paint. She was painting her own rendition of the famed Poussin. The National Gallery permits artists to work in the gallery; so if you ever feel inclined to copy the masters, the National Gallery serves as the perfect place for artistic inspiration.
