Description

Foreword by Max Hollein

Featuring more than 800 artworks from the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, this groundbreaking book—organized by thematic keywords rather than the usual chronological or geographical categories, and drawing upon analytics from The Met's online Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History—offers up fresh, unconventional ways of engaging with visual culture. Beyond the wealth of illustration, more than 160 engaging curatorial essays place the works in wider contexts, while a fold-out, detachable timeline offers further perspective.

The Met is one of the most important cultural institutions in the world and hosts more than six million visitors each year, with many millions more accessing its collection online. The Museum's director Max Hollein contributes the foreword, while essays are written by the Museum's curatorial staff and other art experts.
