DescriptionThis engaging book from The Metropolitan Museum of Art offers nearly two hundred illustrated descriptions of New York, all presented as simple, concise observations and reactions: A Bearden collage is community; a Hopper painting is solitude. A Tiffany design is on stage; a Sherman photograph is on film. A Burckhardt photograph is authentic; a Steichen photograph is atmosphere.
Reaching across time and form, from nineteenth-century paintings to Art Deco costume to contemporary photographs, the selected works represent the Metropolitan Museum's vast collection and are sure to inspire both novice and seasoned New Yorkers to create their own descriptions of Gotham.
