The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has reunited portraits of two significant artistic friends. This historic reunion was made possible by the donation of Antoine Jean Gros's Self Portrait (left) from the collection of Karen B. Cohen in celebration of the museum's 150th anniversary. Gros's self portrait is intended to be hung along the artist's picture of his friend and painter François Gérard (right) executed at the same time.
