Tomorrow at 11am, curators at The Met will give ten-minute talks on art created between the fourth millennium B.C. and the 13th century in the lands that are now Iraq, Syria, Iran, and Yemen - four of the seven countries affected by the recent U.S travel ban. Taking place in the galleries of Ancient Near Eastern Art and of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central, and Later South Asia, the talks will focus on different works of art in the permanent collection and will be followed by conversation with visitors. Relief Panel. Period: Neo-Assyrian. Date: ca. 883 - 859 B.C. #TheMet #MetCurator

Sargent probably made this watercolor of one of Venice's characteristic alleys in preparation for one of his oils--see my last post--which depicted Venetians engaged in quotidian activities. Here Venice appears like a stage set awaiting its characters.
