Harmony in Blue and Gold can be seen on the third Thursday of each month with its shutters open for natural light. Quite different to see it this way...and worth timing your visit to the Freer in order to do it. We had a very good docent present who offered to give me more information about the room. He explained some interesting things about the room and of course, about Whistler's involvement with the Leylands and how that ended up. I love, love, love Whistler's paintings and this room is a gem. Take time to look at the walls and notice how they are decorated, and be sure to take a look at a photo of the room before Whistler began his artistic handiwork. It's pretty clear he had a very strong ego to go with his awesome talent.
