The Metropolitan Museum is jam-packed today, which is to be expected. I limited myself to a brief assault just to see a couple pieces. I did, however, want to share a Christological goldfinch in this painting by Sano di Pietro (+1480). The Sienese like the finches. They also often show little Jesus with some Mom’s veil in his hand.
I also liked this delightful (not quite) still life by Georg Flegel (+1630):
It’s time to get out into the wind and the sun, to find some dappled paths and soughing in the leaves.
A beautiful day in the park.
After supper, I got a lift home from friends. Heading across town on 46th we saw a HUGE nearly full dark yellow moon rising between the buildings across the width if the island.
The photo doesn’t do it justice.
