I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art (“the Met”) found at 1000 Fifth Avenue in New York City on Saturday, September 15, 2018, during a visit home. Although there was substantial traffic because of a German Heritage parade, it was a beautiful day to visit a magnificent museum. Everything about the Met is grand, including its entrance lobby and its artwork. I passed a few hours wandering the different halls with my family, while taking pictures and notes for this assignment. Some of my favorites during this visit was the Heavenly Bodies exhibit and the many halls filled by American artists. After much thought, I decided that the painting, “Moses Shown the Promised Land” would be the focus of this paper.
