The last time I was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art I obsessed over the higher-floor view of the lobby, what they call the Great Hall. Floods of humanity moving in and out as the wooden benches are almost always occupied with tired tourists. Below is a screen shot of the Great Hall from Google Maps. By the way, you can tour the entire museum with Street View.
With this new painting, I zoomed in a bit more on a couple taking a break from touring the museum, I found their interlocking hands so sweet and the main inspiration for this painting. This piece will be included in my grouping 'Met Life', opening this Friday at the Morris & Whiteside Gallery.
