Art in New York City (Part One)

I love four-day trips to New York. For art lovers, there's plenty to see and experience. The city showcases some of the best European and North American fine art on the planet. There's Picasso, Van Gogh, Rothko, Pollock, Hopper, and too many more to mention.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art , the Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Brooklyn Museum are among my favourite museums. There's never enough time to do it all so on my most recent visit I hit the Met, the MoMA and the Guggenheim to see some favourites in permanent collections and check out the exhibitions and commissions. I'll be posting another post with my thoughts on some of the art.

In the meantime, here's a slideshow of some of works of art that stood out:
