Medhanie Mesfin Mrs. Katherine Wagner Art Appreciation 1301-8002 Analyzing the Iceberg The Art that I really like on the museum is The Icebergs 1861, by Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900).

It allows the art work to stand out; because the art work has winter setting. From my point of view the way that the museum displayed the art work is perfect. The reason I said that is, the room is its a kind of dark so the winter season especially the Icebergs stand out from other spaces around the art work....
