It was a beautiful day & after my visit to the Guggenheim, I strolled along 5th Ave., beside Central Park headed to the
as museum mile, because
it contains one of the densest displays of culture in the world.
There are ten museums in all at present count.
At the Metropolitan I saw
Febuary 28- June 3 2012.
Gertrude Stein & her brothers Leo & Michael were major patrons of modern art in Paris at the beginning of the twentieth century. Together they amassed a vast collection of important of paintings, including works by Matisse, Picasso, Cézanne, Degas, Gauguin, & many others. This exhibit reunites over two hundred of these works, & examines the relationship between the Stein family & the artists of their time.
My Favorite part of this exhibit was seeing the blown up photographs of Gertrude Stein's Paris apartment, with so many of the same paintings on the walls.
After a long & culturally inspiring day, it was time to board the bus back to Boston. I was home & in my bed by midnight.
