Classic Paintings at MOMA

The winter season is great for spending time in the best museums in the world, and New York City has so many of them! MOMA is a big favorite, and I love viewing the paintings from their permanent collection.  

I love photographing the paintings up close  
Monet is one of the most beautiful and if you have never viewed one in person, you need to!  

I cannot imagine painting this so very large piece.  

As you know how I love color, this one was just over the top for me!  

So very pretty! 

The classic Starry Night 
The Starry Night is an oil on canvas by the Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. Painted in June 1889, it depicts the view from the east-facing window of his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

Since I have been so lucky to be able to view so many great works of art, I am seriously thinking of taking a art history class to have a bit more knowledge when I view these in person. You see, New York City can stir your mind and your soul like no other city. This is one of the things I love the most about it, and why it never gets old.
