The Metropolitan Museum of Art



The Metropolitan Museum of Art is America's largest Art Museum, with a massive collection of paintings, sculptures, drawings, books, furniture and costumes. The large museum is governed by 41 elected trustees and a total of 960 fellows and benefactors. The original building was built by Calvert Vaux. Later on society architect Richard Morris Hunt was brought in the building an expansion wing. Eventually 8 wings were added, built by Stanford White, Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo. The wings completely engulfed the original museum, so that now you can only see the front of original building in the Lehman Wing.

  1. Some pretty designs alright. Doing the painting yourselves is more fun but a good place for ideas for more design is this site of wahooart.com, that I use to help with my wall decorations.
    You can browse for a painting like this The tree, by 20th century Czech artist, Frantisek Kupka, for example, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LHUQV , that can be ordered on line and delivered to you.
