Unlike in most UK galleries and museums, visitors are allowed to take photographs (as long as you don't get too close to the artwork) so I happily snapped away capturing my favourite artworks for future reference and to share with you here.
Founded in 1870, the Metropolitan Museum is located in New York City's Central Park along Fifth Avenue (from 80th to 84th Streets). Nearly five million people visit the Museum each year.
I was inspired and overwhelmed by many of the artworks on display. You could spend days inside the Museum and still not see everything on offer. Despite being really busy when I visited, it was still a peaceful space to be in. I was really interested in the Impressionist paintings. I love their use of colour and bold brushwork.
