I photographed many paintings during the NYC trip and this is an example. This painting was created by Henry Matisse. I think it is Chaple of Saint Joseph in Saint Tropez. Henry Matisse lived in Saint Tropez around 1904. The town was a fishing village at the time. This painting is hanging in Metropolitan Museum of Arts NYC.

This is a portrait painting of Gertrude Stein painted by Pablo Picasso in Paris. When Gertrude Stein first saw it she said "But it doesn't look like me" And Pablo Picasso said; "But it will". He was right. He painted this in 1905-1906. This painting is also at the MET.

Also at the Met museum is this sculpture surrounded by Jackson Pollock works. The sculpture is called Kouros. It was created by Isamu Noguchi. This Kouros is just a little bit more abstract than the ancient Greek Kouros from Naxos.😀😀. Jackson Pollocks' Number 28 from 1950 is here. His Autumn Rhythm (Number 30), also from 1950, is also here..
