Description

Edited by Keith Christiansen and Katharine Baetjer

This beautifully illustrated, cleverly designed publication serves as a personal guide through the newly expanded and reinstalled European Paintings Galleries at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The seven itineraries that are described and illustrated explore the Metropolitans celebrated collections of Old Master and nineteenth-century paintings with the following sections: Renaissance Painting in Italy; Italian Painting from Caravaggio to Tiepolo; Northern Painting from Van Eyck to Reynolds; French and Spanish Painting from Poussin to Goya; French, British and Northern European Painting; 19th- Century Paintings and Pastels; and Impressionism and Post-Impressionism.

Published to coincide with the grand opening of the New European Paintings Galleries, 1250-1800, each of these fully illustrated sections offers the reader a series of thematic visits. Color-coded maps, gallery numbers, landmarks, reproductions of the works, and helpful descriptions will orient users within the galleries and help them find the countless masterpieces that the Museum has to offer, and to view them in a comprehensible order. Based on the successful publication The American Wing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art: A Walking Guide, this book is meant to be used in the galleries, at home to plan future visits, or as an illustrated guide to European Painting from the late thirteenth through the nineteenth centuries.

96 pages, 110 full-color illustrations. Includes 18 maps. 4 3/8'' x 7 3/4''. Paper.
