Rembrandt and Einstein at The Morgan Library and Museum

We are back at one of my favorite museums, easily becoming my 2nd favorite to the Met, The Morgan Library and Museum. There were 2 cool exhibits in September that I wanted to show you, and of course, a little trip to the gift shop. If you are looking for cool, unique holiday gifts, check them out in person or online I cannot believe today is November 1st , where did the year go? 
The architecture of this building always brings a smile to my face  
The view looking out one of the windows was pretty darn cool  
From the 2nd level The Morgan Café looks amazing  

This is on my list to try next year with a friend  

This amazing painting was on display from June 3 through September 18, 2016. 

From the Morgan website: 
Completed when he was just twenty-three years old, Rembrandt’s Judas Returning the Thirty Pieces of Silver has long been recognized as the artist’s first mature work, his first masterpiece. The painting demonstrates many of the characteristics that would come to define Rembrandt’s style: dramatic lighting, a rhythmic harmony of composition, and his exceptional ability to convey the emotional drama of a scene. Long held in a British private collection, the painting will be shown in the United States for the first time at the Morgan in Rembrandt’s First Masterpiece. 
The frame was pretty as gorgeous as the painting itself.  

I just love this ceiling 

How neat is it to look at Albert Einstein's handwriting? Just over the top! 

From the Morgan's website: 

A century ago, Albert Einstein published the general theory of relativity, the crowning achievement of the great physicist’s illustrious career. In celebration of this landmark achievement, the Morgan presents a pop-up exhibition featuring a trio of Einstein items. 

Did you say you liked to shop? Visit this gift shop and you will be very happy  
Items change often so good to always pop in when in the area  
I love this unique gift wrap  
Another view from the gift shop looking outside  
If you are looking for a neat journal, this is a great place to find one  

The details in this room just blow my mind
