Two Art Shows
Posted 05 April 2003 - 11:41 AM
The Metropolitan Museum show "Manet/Velazquez" is one of the best art shows I have seen. The show purports to show us the influence of Spanish painters on French and American painters, but even without this artificial pairing it is a great show. In addition to Manet and Velasquez there is Degas, Courbet, Eakins, Sargent and Whistler. It's worth a trip to see it.

I've been wanting to make it into th Metropolitan Art Museum for the "Manet/Velazquez" show - thanks so much for reminding me. Tell me, did you find it super crowded? That's the one thing I hate about these bigger, sort of block buster, shows: too many people with bobbing heads!
I'd better check the dates to make sure I don't miss it!

I, too, had heard stories about how crowded the Manet/Velasquez was, but I had noproblem. However, I went on a weekday morning and arrived at the museum at 10:00 am. The great news is that they do not charge extra for the show. (The Degas show was $20.00!)--and you do not have the nonsense of having to arrive at a certain time. If you get to the Museum by May 18th, there is a great show of photographs by Thomas Struth---hugh photographs that envelop you.
