The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Another overwhelming museum. We spent several hours here, and would love to spend several days.

We concentrated our viewing on European and American art. 

One of our first stops was at The Harvesters, by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, one of the first renowned works in which common people are doing common things, a humanistic revolution.

So much to see everywhere we looked. In the American gallery we spot that famous portrait of George Washington. His head still looks small to us, even in person.

We’d never realized that Washington Crossing the Delaware was painted by a German in Germany.

Self-portraits by Van Gogh and 

We only scratched the surface of the surface and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
