Painting at the Met
When I spent the day at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I came upon this scene and was so surprised. I don't think I have ever seen anyone copying a painting in this museum before. I do know that it is a practice for may students to be allowed to copy paintings, and I have seen it in other museums, but not here. I noticed that the painter was wearing ear buds while painting. If he had not been, I would have asked if he was a student, and asked what school he was from. But I didn't. When I was shooting, I tried several different views. When editing, I decided that seeing the white cloth on the varnished floor was the most dramatic image. But I have included a closer shot so you can see how the artist is doing. Be sure and click on the pictures to see more detail.
