The Met recently featured bedrooms from across its galleries and asked visitors in which room they would want to curl up. Do you like the patterns and bold colours of the Edo period in Japan? The simple studio of artist Mondrian? What about the ornate stuccowork and gilded finishes of 18th century Venice? Shown Above:
1. A Corner of Mondrian's Studio with Bed, Stool, Curtain, and Mirrors by André Kertész (1926).
2. Scene from "The Ivy" (Yadogiri), chapter 49 of the Tale of Genji Studio of Tawaraya Sôtatsu, Edo period (1615-1868).
3. Bedroom from Sagredo Palace, Venice (ca. 1718).
4. Woman with a Water Pitcher, and a Man by a Bed ("The Maidservant") by
Pieter de Hooch (ca. 1667-70).
5. Radha and Krishna on a Bed at Night (1830), recently shown in Inspiration: Indian Miniature Paintings
