As frequent visitors to the Met, we often create personal connections with the works of art we see in the galleries. In the Teen Advisory Group's recent photo adventure throughout the Museum, we attempted to integrate the works of art into our own reality.

In my opinion, this artwork is dull compared to the other works in this gallery, and I don't think this piece would be popular among visitors. However, the lack of color gives these twelve felt panels—which depict fragments of a horse statue in a case—a mysterious aura. I wonder what the statue would have looked like in its entirety.

Madame X is painted in profile, much like many of the Italian Renaissance portraits that we've studied. Yet unlike the Renaissance portraits, this work presents a full-length view of its subject, Madame Pierre Gautreau.

I chose to learn more about Portrait of a Young Man by Jacometto Veneziano because I was fascinated by how the young man's black clothing blends into the dark background of the painting.
