the_princely_furniture_of_the_roentgens_owned_by_the_french_aristocrats_and_the_royals_qkjmf

Yesterday, I gave myself a treat and went to the Met for a couple of hours and just let beauty wash over me;  that’s why you live in New York right-to see the best of the best. Well, The Roentgen furniture exhibit is a knock out.  Now this work is not my “taste” but the imagination and ingenuity is breathtaking. I have to really commend the curators who deftly designed the show for the viewer to understand the kinetic potential of this work. Most pieces have accompanying videos and the beautiful melody of the Marie Antoinette doll clicking away at her harpsichord is endearing. This is a holiday treat, GO!
