Two illustrations of the same story. One the words merged with simple graphics, the other beautiful colors on gold pages. Which one tells a better story? #met #metropolitanmuseumofart #newyork #manhattan #genji
"And I feel that we in our society should not be held by any such myth; that we should do everything we can to gain a delight and joy in our society with all the available parts of the palette." ~Minoru Yamasaki "My daily pallet/ oil paint / 03.18.19..." . . "My work... is recently about the environment and the displacement of plants and animals for the vanity of humans. My focus now is about how we are placing non-indigenous plants in locations and disrupting nature. I highlight our need for conservation of domestic flora and fauna through historical and aesthetic references in my paintings." . 📸 @myloveishuge Copyright 2019 . . #americanartist #photography #chinoiserie #flowers #nathanielgalkaart #nathanielgalka #nycgallery #magicalrealism #kunst #artstudio #art #gaynyc #newyorkartist #nyc #newyorkcity #fineart #interiordesign #painting #losangelesartist #gallery #artistpallette #landscape #paintedflowers #instagay #metropolitanmuseumofart #contemporaryartist #instagramartist #dutchmasters #contemporarypainting
"Emotion that I experienced on first seeing the fresh paint come out of the tube.. ..the impression of colours strewn over the palette: of colours - alive, waiting, as yet unseen and hidden in their little tubes..." ~Wassily Kandinsky . .

Happiness. Period.
Going to miss my little oasis of calm... #vacation #metropolitanmuseumofart
Gossipy/ irreverent things I learnt from my Museum Hacks tour at the Met Museum: 1. William the hippo really has only 1 leg - the other 3 are restorations added by mistake Ooops!. 2. The museum has a 1000-year old pile of rubbish and old raisins on display. 3. The Temple of Dendur (entire temple), gifted to the US by Egypt, was picked by Jackie O and meant to be in Washington but she was convinced to let the Met have it when they moved it to a spot she could overlook from her penthouse! 🤔 4. John Stuart Curry celebrated John Brown in his painting but the choice is a bit bizarre give his questionable, terrorist like methods. Love the crazy face though! 5. “Washington crossing the Delaware” has so many things going wrong with it - it is painted in the day not night, him standing in boat is really not a good idea, the flag in the painting didn’t exist till 2 years later, why are there horses on the tiny boat, Meryl Streep is on the boat and there are African Americans, Native Americans there etc etc. Plus it this iconic American painting was painted by a German artist! And what is that poking out of his trousers???!!! 6. Nobody pays attention to the most expensive piece paid for by the Met - Duccio di Bouninsegna’s Madonna and Child bought at $45M! 7. A visitor tripped and put her elbow through this Picasso. She was breathalyzed and if she was drunk would have had to pay for the repairs! The value of the $140M piece went up afterwards! #metropolitanmuseumofart #gossip #isittrue #museumhack

New York, you are an Egypt! But an Egypt turned inside out. For she erected pyramids of slavery to death, and you erect pyramids of democracy with the vertical organ-pipes of your skyscrapers all meeting at the point of infinity of liberty!

The MET is an art object itself - it’s full of art, beautiful, colors, air and sun. About the paintings collection I’ll write in a separate post - or in a couple of posts, it was excellent. Anyhow, I’ve fulfilled my dream yesterday and spent all the day there. It was one of my best days this year. #art #themet #metropolitanmuseumofart #newyork #nyc #ny #newyork #museum #painting #discover #architecture #architecturephotography #bluesky #travel #travelphotography #bestoftheday #travelblogger #life #dream #goodday

One of the first film photograph i took with old Minolta SRT-101 back in 2007. I took this B&W in the metropolitan Museum. I found that the Grainy B&W of the Fuji Neopan 400 was a perfect match for this kind of mystery images! This photograph was also the cover of my first exhibition done in Paris soon after i comeback from this trip! ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………#photooftheday #beautiful #travel #newyork #canon #travelphotography #vsco #natgeoyourshot #followme #travelphotography #adventurer #picoftheday #life #bbctravel #travellingthroughtheworld #fantastic_earth #earthfocus #earth #instapic #ig_bestpicworldtravel #like4like #resourcemag #instapic #dreamingnature #liveforthestory #cpfeatureme #filmisnotdead #filmphotography #blackandwhite #metropolitanmuseumofart
