"NYC Met Museum Art--European Arts" Metropolitan Museum of Art Tip by atufft
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City: 194 reviews and 382 photos
American wealth and prosperity has allowed the well endowed Met to successfully bid at auction for whole rooms of furniture, and even the walls themselves, from European palaces. I suppose that much of this was all so much junk for the European collector, at one time. Thus, this section resembled Hearst Castle in California, where wooden panels, and even stone from Europe were imported and reassembled to provide space for European sculpture and decorative arts. The collection of marble statues is impressive.
Address: 1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street
