Grand Canyon r/g

I woke up this morning with the feeling that I wanted to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I usually go a few times a year and haven't gone over the winter so I just dropped everything and went. Saw the Courbet and Jasper Johns exhibit. Well I should say I saw half of the Courbet and a run through on the Johns. I get overwhelmed in about 45 minutes so I prioritize my visits. Courbet did soooo many self-portraits. They also showed two identical paintings side by side and explained that he wanted to keep one for himself so he painted duplicates. I loved that. Mainly because I have a love/hate relationship with selling paintings and have done that quite often. Like to keep my babies with me~
