Young Woman with a Lute - Johannes Vermeer (1662-63 ) A young woman glances out a window while turning her lute. Wealthy young people in the Dutch Republic studied music as part of their education. The map of Europe in the background reflects the decoration of Dutch homes at the time, a sign of pride in the nations preeminence in navigation. #art #artistsoninstagram #artist #artwork #artoftheday #artcollectors #artcurator #artcollector #oilpainting #oiloncanvas #oilpaintings #dutchmasters #johannesvermeer #vermeer #themetropolitanmuseumofart #themet #thepocketgallery

Already established as a successful New York book-cover designer and a talented botanical watercolorist, Margaret Armstrong realized that a guidebook did not yet exist for flowers growing in territory west of the Rockies, apart from California. She made five arduous trips between 1909 and 1914, trekking with women friends through mountains and deserts to gather specimens and make drawings for her Field Book of Western Wild Flowers (1915 ). She found this yellow poppy in the coastal California town of Montecito in spring 1912 before moving on to Yosemite for several weeks. This watercolor comes from an album that was handed down within the artist’s family.⁣ ⁣ This work is currently hanging in the exhibition, "Selections from the Department of Drawings and Prints: Collectors' Collections," in The Met's Robert Wood Johnson, Jr. Gallery.

“Ten Elements for East Window of an Architectural Ensemble from a Jain Meeting Hall” 🇮🇳 ✏️La cúpula de madera tallada, los balcones y los soportes de este conjunto arquitectónico pertenecían al gudha-mandapa (sala de reunión y oración ) del templo Vadi Parshvanatha Jain en Patan, Gujarat. Durante la renovación y ampliación del templo a principios del siglo XX, esta porción del edificio fue descartada; nada de la estructura original sobrevivió en Patan. ¡Anímate a visitar esta maravilla! #newyork #nuevayork #newyorkcity #india #themet #themetropolitanmuseumofart #nyc #elmuseometropolitanodearte #museo #museometropolitanonewyork #museometropolitanodeartedenuevayork #escultura #arte #viajes #viaje #viajeros #viajera #andandoandoveloz

Dotato di uno straordinario talento, Gian Lorenzo Bernini si formò nella bottega del padre Pietro, periodo in cui padre e figlio collaborarono a diverse sculture di marmo. Il gruppo qui rappresentato è la scultura più ambiziosa di quel periodo e testimonia l’interesse del giovane artista per la creazione di gruppi di figure intrecciate tra loro e diverse superfici: si noti la tensione dei muscoli del fauno, la bocca priva di denti, i putti paffuti, la corteccia dell’albero e il grappolo di frutti succosi. Ispirata ad antichi sarcofagi, questa scena bacchica mostra la fusione di classicismo e naturalismo tipica dell’arte a Roma alle soglie del Barocco. • • • Bernini, Gian Lorenzo, Baccanale: un fauno preso in giro da bambini, 1616 ~ 1617; Marmo, 132.4 x 73.7 x 47.9 cm Metropolitan Museum of Art ~ New York __ #baccanale #bernini #themet #gianlorenzobernini #fauno #sculpture #sculptures #sculptor #figurativesculpture #artsculpture #sculture #artobject #instasculpture #sculptors #sculptural #sculpturegallery #modernsculpture #antiquesculptures #sculptureoftheday #sculptureofinstagram #sculpturelovers #metropolitanmuseumofart

Spilling red wine on a host’s couch or carpet may be the ultimate faux pas, but at ancient Greek drinking parties it was encouraged and even expected! During Greek symposia, men reclining on cushioned couches got drunk on wine and played a drinking game called kottabos, in which they hurled the lees (leftover sediment ) from their cups at a target. Most Greek women did not take part in symposia, but there are some indications that courtesans played kottabos with the men. In the scene on this 5th century B.C. kylix (20.246 ), a courtesan holding a drinking cup up by one handle is about to fling the lees. Technique was essential to maintain elegant form, accuracy, and to avoid spilling on oneself. Still, there is no doubt that the game would end in a mess, with all participants—and the floor—drenched in wine. #GreekRoman #TheMet #kottabos #Dionysos #satyr #maenad #Hieron #Makron #kylix #symposia

Not a usual subject for a painting - undergrowth in the forest. And not the usual colour palette for this painter - he loved bright yellow. Nevertheless, characteristic bold strokes and bold colours in this less well known work. Who is the artist?

Cruz del Milagro (El Príncipe ) 1200–900 B.C. Olmec Nicknamed El Príncipe (the Prince ), this basalt sculpture, with its rounded face, slightly parted lips, and squinting eyes, exemplifies the naturalistic Olmec figural style. The figure assumes the posture of a ruler: seated, with the torso leaning forward and fists resting in front of crossed legs. His headdress, carved to resemble knotted leather or textile, features a rectangular plaque. Cylindrical earspools likely represent elongated jade beads. Olmec rulers valued basalt and had either massive boulders or finished artworks transported from distant quarries, probably by floating them on rafts along rivers. 💚💚💚 . . . . #art #olmec #olmec #preclassic #mesoamerica #mexico #statue #king #prince #basalt #sculpture #warrior #gettymuseum #themet #themetropolitanmuseumofart #california #cali #culture

Saturday inspiration from the @metcostumeinstitute #Repost @metcostumeinstitute ・・・ 🌹 This hat features silk roses and leaves applied on a net and overlaid on a dome crown formed with a velvet-covered wire trellis structure. Flowers have long been a mainstay of hat decoration, especially in the late 1950s and early 1960s when faux blossoms would often cover entire surfaces of hats. // Hat, Henri Bendel (American, founded 1895 ), ca. 1960; Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Gift of the Brooklyn Museum, 2009; Gift of Mrs. Morehead Patterson, 1972 (2009.300.2604 )

One day I got a proposal from @ottolenghi to work on a project for the Metropolitan Museum @metmuseum in New York that would reflect my ideology of cake creating and my architectural approaches to it and to represent it at the event “Feast of Versailles”. The event organizers gave all the pastry chefs that took part in the event a lot of materials devoted to the food and culture of Versailles. In the XVII - XVIII centuries, in Versailles, it was traditional and quite popular to make multi-scale pyramids out of food - it could be fruits, cakes, or just regular meals. Inspired by this idea, I decided to create a multi-tier cake. To create the relief of the cake, I used the motives that I found in the bas-relief of a castle of Versailles. The decoration of this cake is not just regular berries and bows - these are real bas-reliefs in rooms that I was trying to represent. One of the main goals was also to resemble the taste that was common for the XVII - XVIII centuries, so I used berries, marcipan, roses, vanilla, cream etc. - the ingredients that could be found at that time, and it was one of the challenges I faced creating such a cake. To be continued 😄 . . #3dprinting #cake #cakes #pastry #pastrchef #tiercake #dinarakasko #торт #ярусныи ̆торт #силиконовыеформы #siliconemould #cakemould #выпечка #pastryart #bigcake #themet #themetropolitanmuseumofart #cakeart #versailles #buzzfeastfood #designmilk #cakeart
