MoMA New York

Of course, I was bound to do a post on MoMA New York 😉 The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is an art museum in Midtown Manhattan in
New York City (on 53rd Street) between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. It has been important in developing and collecting modernist art, and is often identified as the most influential museum of modern art in the world. The museum’s collection offers an overview of modern and contemporary art, including works of architecture and design, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, prints, illustrated books and artist’s books, film, and electronic media. The collection houses important and familiar works as The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh, The Sleeping Gypsy by Henri Rousseau, The Dream (1910), by Henri Rousseau, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Pablo Picasso, Campbell’s Soup Cans by Andy Warhol, Painting (1946) by Francis Bacon and Water Lilies triptych by Claude Monet (among others). I didn’t go all out photographing the paintings, as I already enjoyed the museum thoroughly just sitting there in front of the works. But I hope these will give you somewhat of an idea of the museum’s collection.
