This completely reconceived and rewritten guide to the Metropolitan Museum's encyclopedic holdings--the first new edition of the guidebook in nearly thirty years--provides the ideal introduction to almost 600 essential masterpieces from one of the world's most popular and beloved museums. It features a compelling and accessible design, beautiful color reproductions, and up-to-date descriptions written by the Museum's own experts.
More than a simple souvenir book, "The Metropolitan Museum of Art Guide" provides a comprehensive view of art history spanning five millennia and the entire globe, beginning with the Ancient World and ending in contemporary times. It includes media as varied as painting, photography, costume, sculpture, decorative arts, musical instruments, arms and armor, works on paper, and many more. Presenting works ranging from the ancient Egyptian Temple of Dendur to Canova's "Perseus with the Head of Medusa" to Sargent's "Madame X," this is an indispensable volume for lovers of art and art history, and for anyone who has ever dreamed of lingering over the most iconic works in the Metropolitan's unparalleled collection.
