"But I know what I like"

Paintings from MOMA. We threw this visit in on our last morning in NYC, and I am so glad that we did.  There may be better representatives of these famous works on-line, but this is proof to myself that I have seen them with my own eyes.  A huge collection: these were some of my favorites.

Also Rousseau: The Sleeping Gypsy. But I look at it and start singing "In the jungle, the mighty jungle . . ."
