In the legendary literature based philosophical work called “The Romantic Manifesto” of Ayn Rand, the mother of corporate and artistic objectivity in not just in New York, but also in every progressing nation, community or individual, she clearly cites, “The position of art in the scale of human knowledge is, perhaps the most eloquent symptom of the gulf between man’s progress in the physical sciences and his stagnation in the humanities.” The museum of modern art makes one such position gathering the works of immense intellectual heights of human creativity and growth.
Opened for general public on November 7, 1929, by Abby Rockefeller (wife of John D Rockefeller Jr.) and friends, The Museum of Modern Art is the one single prominent compilation of famous modern art in the world consisting of works like:
• Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Pablo Picasso
• The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh
• Broadway Boogie Woogie by Piet Mondrian
• The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali
• The Sleeping Gypsy by Henri Rousseau
• The Dream by Henri Rousseau
• Campbell’s Soup Cans by Andy Warhol
Museum of Modern Art also owns an extensive collection 300,000 books, artist books, and periodicals, as well as individual files on more than 70,000 artists, approximately 22,000 films and 4 million film stills, a vast collection that makes the museum one major source for materials related to the history of modern and contemporary art. The museum also has an inbuilt award-winning fine dining restaurant as well called ‘The Modern’. It is run by the famous Alsace-born chef Gabriel Kreuther.
Located on 53rd Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in Midtown Manhattan, the museum is extremely close to East Village Apartments in Manhattan providing a budgeted luxury accommodation for you and your family at an extremely reasonable price for a short comfortable vacation. The place sure does teach you how to live with colors and endless possibilities of imagination!
