Canaletto And Gauguin Make A Strange Couple At The National Gallery Of Art In Washington D.C.

There are two art exhibits side by side in the East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. at present. One is of the work of Paul Gauguin and the other is of the work of Canaletto and some other Venetian painters. It seems odd to me that the National Gallery chose to exhibit these shows side by side.
See my two posts below about the Gauguin exhibit and the crazy woman who attacked one of the paintings last week.
  The Venetian paintings are drawing crowds of much older people. The Gauguin show is drawing mostly young people but also people of all ages.
