As a lover of ancient history, going to a museum is the only way to fill my experience of the artwork because art gives me a feeling of relaxing and calm. Also, by looking at a painting or sculpture in a book cannot fully experience the artwork until I really see the real painting held within its walls. So, Last week I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Museum opens the door to a world of fantasy and colorful. Entering the doorway stand by two security guards, they are very humorous and politely ask the consumer to take out any electronic material from their bag to scan through the machine. From my perspective, have a visit to the museum is similar to visiting a fairyland in Disney world. A lot of new ideas appear in my eyes and a wonderful feeling of pleasure arises inside. The most mysterious part of this museum was that it has several categories of artworks displayed in different portions of the museum. The main categories of the artworks displayed at the museum are American art, American decorative arts, Asian art, Egyptian art, Greek and Roman art, African art, European art. However, the artworks include various forms of style that I don't have any clue about each form is about, but the colors of the artworks have always intrigued me a lot due to my interest in the study of philosophy. Lastly, it is very pleasant that I got a chance to see many beautiful and charming artworks at the museum. As I enter, from room to room in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, it has many sections to European painting. Along the European painting, my cousin Anna, and I saw some tour guide explaining the European history and their artwork. Some interesting painting like Jacque- Louis David, he paints the art of Socrates. Then, the tour discusses some humorous facts about Socrates and I was so attracted to their attention and we follow them throughout the guide.
As we move forward, Anna and I were viewing the painting "The Death of Socrates" by Jacques-Louis David.
