George’s Painting Note: This must-see building was a bit of a disappointment from the many pictures I had seen when a student of architecture. It was crowded, the carpets had been removed, and a third of it was being remodeled – maybe I have to get used to all of this! After all it is several hundred years old! So, I had to look up to the domed ceiling for the wonder I sought. At least the chandelier was hanging just as it has been for many years!
