Some very good tips there.

In answer to your question ‘What is a piece of art that you’ve traveled for?’, The Last Supper in Milan. That’s not strictly true - I was already in Milan on business, but I carved out some time and took a special trip to see it. It’s one of my most memorable art experiences. Being in a room with one masterpiece for 15 minutes with nothing else to look at. Slow art…

Thank you for reading Andrew! Incredible. Good for you making time for such a remarkable piece. It’s truly something splendid isn’t it? I saw it earlier this year for the first time and wow. Thank you for sharing this experience. You’ve reminded me how much I want to go back to Milan.

What are your favorite museums? (The ones I've been to personally)

Le Louvre

Musée D'Orsay

Musée de la musique

Musée de la vie romantique

What is a piece of art that you’ve traveled for?

The Princesse de Broglie

Painting by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres

Which is located at the Met if you'd like to visit her.

Do you have any museum rituals?

Spending the entire day there. That's what me and my whole family did while we were at the Louvre when we were in Paris. We went to Le Lourvre 5 days a week. It might seem like work in the eyes of other people, but for me and my family it was really lovely and amazing to be able to spend so much time in the Museum. I wouldn't mind living there lol.

Did you like this guide?

Yes very much! It was really fun reading through it and it had a magical power of bringing me nostalgic when I was visiting museums back in the day. I would really love trying this new way of visiting a museum the next time I go to one.

Ingres is amazing! I've loved his art since I was a young child. I would love to go see it again and try out your guide when I visit the Met of any other museums. Thank you so much for the beautiful guide! I'm going to check out some of your other articles too! Keep up the amazing work Aaron!
