Dateline NYC: Met and Moma

Both the Met and the Moma (The Metoplitian museum of Art and Muesum of Modern Art for non-new yorkers) are so awesome and yet static that you really only go very rarely UNLESS – they have a special exhibit — and the Met’s exhibit of the Stein’s personal collection (as in Gertrude Stein, and her brother’s and sister) is pretty amazing — esp since these are the people that basically created the modern concept of a Salon as we know it today.  Even more amazing is that the vast majority of the art they owned, they personal got from the artist — or arranged swaps so that they could afford the work of art.

Here are just a few of the dozens of pictures they owned
