A Night at the Met
Interpretations by John Besante

58 Gallery building owner, and artist John Besante has been painting a series of impressionist masterpieces for the last decade. And you may not know that all of them have been on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. True ? yes it's true:

John Besante has been copying works at the Met for nearly a decade. On Wednesday afternoon, you can find him copying some of the great masterpieces. So if you can't afford any of the million dollar price tags at the museum, tonight will be your opportunity to score a (un)real deal.
