Dropping in, Late at Night at the Met

January 17, 2012 MuseumChick

On a whim around 8:00 at night last Friday I went to the Metropolitan Museum. That’s what I love so much about living in NYC. So much culture and access to museums at any time. Dropping in on a museum at night last minute is something that keeps me inspired. This is what I saw…

I love the modern quality of these ancient pieces. Seeing them brought back great memories of discovering Cycladic Art at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens and being in the Greek Islands.

    Is that a Brancusi sculpture in the top photo at the right? I know that’s not the sort of pairing you’ve expect to see at the Met, but darn it looks modern.

      Isn’t it amazing to see all the ancient influences in modern art. This is all Cycladic art from approximately 2500 BC. and a few ancient Greek urns. I believe the Met does have some Brancusi sculptures but I haven’t seen them lately.
