Had a trip to the MET today and saw the Winslow Homer exhibit. The exhibit is quite large and contains many iconic Homer works. Some of the works I've seen before in Philadelphia's museums when I was a student. I'm not a huge Homer fan, but I'm fond of his watercolors, which are very vivid and nice to see in person. I didn't bother to take photos of his oils because the photos don't do justice and looked like garbage. The other image below is a Frits Thaulow that I was also admiring.
Prior to seeing these works, our Florence Academy group got up close with some master drawings in the MET's drawing and prints department library, which you can access by appointment only. We saw works by Rubens, Goya, Lagros, Allan Ramsay, Ribera, among others. We got to sketch from these drawings without any glass between us and the drawings. It was a cool experience.
