Yesterday we went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the first time since last March. We wandered through two wonderful, diverse exhibits: Alice Neel’s People Come First and The Medici: Portraits & Politics 1512-1570. Room after spacious room with great art. Neel captured New York City and the sixteenth century artists, Jacopo Pontormo and Francesco Salviati (among others) captured Florence. For dessert we went to the roof and gloried in the city landscape and Alex Da Corte’s whimsical As Long As the Sun Lasts.
