I’ve been fascinated with Greek and Roman art and antiquity my entire life – I’m quite sure a very early visit to Ludington Court at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art started it all. I have fond childhood memories of the museum where my mother was a docent for many years. Years later, I even met my husband there! As a lapsed Art History student, I am still enchanted by museums of all sorts; that said the MET remains the ne plus ultra – especially with the addition of the MET Breuer. This makes for the perfect trio between the MET on 5th and The Cloisters. Pictured here is a bronze sculpture in the largest of the Greek and Roman galleries, standing on a finely tessellated floor surrounded by grand columns – very much evoking an ancient villa – quite a transformation from what was once a restaurant!
