Friends and Young Friends Event: Private tour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Writing in the September 2013 issue of The New Criterion, the collector, gallerist, and conservator-restorer Marco Grassi said of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's revamped European painting galleries: "These changes have once again...reaffirmed the centrality of European painting in our Western culture. The new galleries, preceded as they are by that impossibly broad staircase, now truly preside as the core of Hunt's grand monument." On the morning of February 21, Marco will lead an exclusive private tour of the galleries for Friends and Young Friends of The New Criterion.
Space for this special event is extremely limited. For further details and to reserve your place, please contact Eric Simpson, simpson[at]newcriterion.com, (212) 247-6980.
