Postcard from...New York City, USA

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City was founded in 1870 by a group of American businessmen, financiers, artists and thinkers of the day who wanted to bring art education to the American people. It's the largest art museum in the United States, and one of the ten largest in the world, with its permanent collection containing more than two million works in as many square feet.

On my visit I focused on the European Sculpture and Decorative Arts collection and the Greek and Roman Art but there are many other collections to view such as Arms and Armor, Asian Art, Islamic Art, Egyptian Art, and American Art just to name a few.
