Guitars @ Met Museum

Every time I visit the museum I have to check out the musical instruments wing at the Met. And everytime I stare at those pieces of history/art in awe. This time I was hoping to take a photo of Segovia’s guitar, but it wasn’t there.

Nevertheless, thought I’d show you a tiny portion of the large collection of guitars and stringed instruments now on display. I recommend you go and check them out whenever you get a chance [pay as you wish to enter, folks, so price should not be an excuse].

Sorry you missed it! Right now the Segovia guitar is in the exhibition in honor of the Met’s just-retired director featuring key acquisitions of his thirty years in the position, as are some other beautiful musical instruments. You can read about it on the Museum’s website under the exhibition “The Philippe de Montebello Years;” there’s even a little audio talk with the director and curator where they discuss how an Austrian maker came to make a Spanish-style guitar.

I skimmed above your post ( sorry, not the standard stuff that I study ), and I’m truly curious what theme you happen to be employing? It’s truly easy on my eyes and I could use something like that with my personal weblog.
