This man spent a lot of time looking at "Perseus with the Head of Medusa," a sculpture by Antonio Canova, 1804-6, at the MET in New York. He kept circling and circling this wonderful piece of work. It is truly a marvel! It was a challenge to paint, so I can't imagine what it was like to sculpt! This hall is filled with pieces from the past. How wonderful to have them preserved forever and accessible in a structure like the MET.
