European Sculpture Court

After wandering the galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a few hours, John and I always look forward to a visit to the Carroll and Milton Petrie European Sculpture Court.
It's a beautifully lit, tall courtyard filled with sculpture like the Maillol nude to the left here and Rodin's Burgers of Calais to the  right and plenty of seating to rest your weary feet.
Besides the beautiful sculptures like Antoine Bourdelle's The Archer pictured here, there's always great people watching to enjoy while you relax.
The space is favoured by young art students sketching the artwork. A perfect, free place to take a break when visiting the Met's immense collections.
