At the time of our visit on a holiday, the museum was short staffed and so the galleries for Rembrandt and other Dutch masters were closed. But, I took a telephoto shot of a Rembrandt self-portrait anyway. The NYC Met collection of Impressionist painters is outstanding, including a number of very famous paintings. Van Gough is a particular favorite of mine, but I was pretty weary by this time in the first visit, so I promise a better update later.
