The Metropolitan Museum of Art! Enormous, easy to get entangled in, slightly exhausting. And we've barely scraped the surface--today we just took in the second floor, which varies widely in medium, time period, and culture. Luckily this museum is free with my student ID, so we'll be back! And in more comfortable shoes. It will be a cosy place to explore when the air gets chillier, and that frozen stuff--What do you Northeasterners call it? Snow?--begins to blanket the city.
Dutch still lives make me so happy! Obsessive attention to detail, food, flowers, and composition is right up my alley.
Creepy young child in red with ominous cats intent on the demise of his magpie, perhaps symbolic of his early death? Real sinister, 18th century.
