When was the last time you visited #TheMet? ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ The first real step in establishing the Metropolitan Museum of Art was taken when John Taylor Johnston (1820-1893) invited to his mansion, as the The New York Times reported in 1870, “A large number of gentlemen, interested in the subject of the progress of art in the City … After an hour spent in the examination of Mr. Johnston's magnificent gallery of pictures, the subject of the meeting, the raising of funds to establish the Museum, was opened by the host.” Among the dozens of millionaires in attendance at Johnston’s home that evening were James W. Beekman, J. Pierpont Morgan, Levi P. Morton, Henry G. Marquand, Alexander Stuart, Rutherford Stuyvesant, and Alexander Van Rensselaer. Johnston would be elected the founding president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. (from Daytonian in Manhattan)⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Johnston died on this day in 1893 and is interred at Green-Wood. Shown here is is marble mansion, on the corner, photographed by Berenice Abbott in 1936, via New York Public Library. #historicgreenwood#metmuseum#metmoment#metbreuer#metmodern

The reconstructed colossal sphinx of Hatshepsut, the first female pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, stood originally at her mortuary temple in Deir el-Bahri. It is believed that Pharaoh Thutmose III, her nephew and successor, commanded the destruction of her statues in a way to erase her accomplishments from history. The fragments of the destroyed statues were disposed to the Senenmut Quarry, which would be found by the Metropolitan Museum’s Egyptian expedition in 1926-1928. About to leave Dubai to finally get to Cairo, where will spend some days and then we will visit the Queen’s temple in Deir el-Bahri.

Portrait of a lady with Kokoschnik (c.1890) . 🎨 Painted by Konstantin Makovsky. Born: 20 June 1839, Moscow, Russia. Died: 17 September 1915, Saint Petersburg, Russia. (aged 76) . 🖼 Oil on canvas 36,4 x 29,6 cm. . 🏛 Location: Private Collection. . 📝 Konstantin Makovsky was an important Realist painter, renowned for “his nostalgic historical paintings,” which find their roots in and respect “the old-world customs of Russia.” He was part of the Wanderers cooperative of artists who opposed the academic restrictions set out by the conventional art world. Born in Moscow in summer of 1839, Makovsky was the son of Russian amateur painter Yegor Ivanovich Makovsky and his composer wife. He showed an aptitude for both painting and music at an early age and his parents encouraged a vocation in the arts. Therefore, he enrolled at the Moscow School of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture at the age of 12. His scholastic ability was singular, and he rose steadily to become one of the top pupils at the academy, garnering every accolade and award that was offered. Makovsky trained under MM.I Skotty, himself a student of Karl Bryullov, the painter who effected the transition from neoclassicism to romanticism earlier in the early 19th century. Makovsky’s inclination towards embellishment and detail can be seen as the direct influence of his instruction. After graduating from secondary school, Makovsky traveled to France in search of classical composers to refer to. He journeyed through Europe, listening to the various forms of traditional folk and classical music. According to his journals, he often felt a compulsion to improve upon what he heard and struggled to choose between his parents’ professional dreams for him. Ultimately, he chose art. By the end of the century, he was one of the most highly regarded and well-paid artists in Russia. Although some critics consider his compositions shallow, others have hailed him as a precursor to Russian Impressionism. Konstantin Makovsky died in September of 1915 when his carriage was hit by an electric tram in St. Petersburg. . (Fig 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7: Details) . . .

“Hercules the Archer” by Antoine Bourdelle “Hercules the Archer” by Antoine Bour
“Hercules the Archer” by Antoine Bourdelle “Hercules the Archer” by Antoine Bourdelle depicts Herakles bending his bow to shoot at the Stymphalian birds, a task which according to the myths of Hercules was one of the Six Labour of Hercules. In Greek mythology, the birds were monstrous and used their sharp-pointed feathers as arrows, to kill men and beasts, and then devour them. These horrible birds were infesting the woods surrounding the lake Stymphale, in Arcadia, a region of Greece. According to myth, Heracles shot the birds with feathered arrows tipped with poisonous blood from the slain Hydra. #metmuseum#met#metropolitanmuseumofart#metropolitanmuseum#themet#themetropolitanmuseumofart#carollandmiltonpetrie#5thavenue#european#europeansculpture#sculptures#esculturas#antique#antiguo#centralpark#manhattan#nyc#nycity#newyork#newyorkcity#picturesofnewyork#mobilephotography#climatictravelernewyork#streetphotography#newyorkgram#ilovenewyork#iloveny#herakles#hercules#heraklesthearcher
