Found at a local library sale, this was a joy to discover and slowly read each page, noting the text and paying particular attention to the art work.

The American Wing of the Metropolitan Art Museum in NYC, houses approximately 1,700 works of fine and decorative art including sculpture, stained glass and paintings.

When visiting the Met, I usually go to the American Wing first. Filled with exquisite paintings including, to name just a few of my favorites: Madame X and The Wyndham Sisters by John Singer Sargent, and Gulf Stream by Winslow Homer.

There are wonderful intricate carved furniture pieces, detailed costumes, and Tiffany glass.

And, there is more, oh so much more. If you haven't been there, and can visit, I highly recommend you do so. And, if you are not able to visit, this lovely book highlighting some of the acquisitions, will show you just one wing of what is the marvelous MET museum!
