Sigh

Evelin, TAG Member

Posted: Wednesday, May 22, 2013

It's been a long day. You've been knocked around a couple of times. You sit down, and your eyes slowly begin to close. It's time to breathe a sigh of relief, take a break, and transport yourself to a different, more peaceful place. Two works by the Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840–1926) allow you to do just that.

The short film Flash in the Metropolitan documents different works of art at the Met in the middle of the night.
