Josh was so nice to babysit the girls a few Saturdays ago and let me have a fun day in New York City on my own. I spent most of my day at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which was just as wonderful (and huge!) as I remembered it. Here are a few favorites...
More from Sargent
"The Harvesters" by Pieter Bruegel
"Flight into Egypt" by Henry Ossawa Tanner (I've never even heard of this artist before, but I loved this painting!)
The one on the right is a Rockwell Kent painting
Vermeer (one of my favorites!) and John H. Twachtman
Cezanne (his still lifes are always so good) and Gauguin
I loved this one from John. H. Twachtman
William Baziotes and Picasso
Andre Derain and Chuck Close
Picasso and Manierre Dawson
Klimt and Monet
Manet and Ingres
The Met is such a fabulous art collection ...and I only saw a fraction of the galleries. It's always so good for my soul to be surrounded by such great art. I feel lucky to be living back east, so close to such great art collections. Thanks to Josh for letting me have a fun outing into NYC!
