The Met II

Very unique how one could get right up to the various Rembrandts and Vermeers—within a few inches. Gratifying to be able to do that, on the one hand, but on the other, seeing them as actual physical objects somehow seemed to reduce their iconic stature.

I think that there was a nice Charles Sheeler exhibit going on when I visited.
