Breakthrough on 82nd & Fifth

82nd & Fifth

We just posted my episode, entitled Breakthrough, as part of 82nd & Fifth, the award-winning web series that has introduced our audience and our curators to a whole new way of looking at works of art: one object, one curator, two minutes at a time. I chose one of my favorite masterpieces—a Bernard van Orley tapestry of The Last Supper from 1524—and was amazed by the stunning details that Met photographer Peter Zeray was able to capture. This is the 75th of this 100-episode project, and I hope you take some time to enjoy them all.

    Fantastic, concise, and compelling presentation. Thank you for this gift. I'm visiting New York soon and this is on my must see list now.

    I tried to view 82nd and Fifth on my computer and was told to download Adobe Flash Player. I did as instructed and I am still unable to view it. Any suggestions?
