Artist Bradley Stevens’s “Museum Studies” consists of 13 paintings portraying the insides of various museums — most prominently the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the District’s National Gallery of Art. Each painting contains renditions of many of the famous works of art housed in those buildings, and depicts people admiring them.
"Connections" by Bradley Stevens. The paintings in his “Museum Studies" series are not mere copies. The rooms he chose to paint and the works hanging in those rooms are personal choices. In fact, Stevens "moved" particular paintings around in his museum rooms, sometimes for compositional reasons, but mostly to showcase works that influenced him and artists whom he admires.Courtesy of Bradley Stevens
