Edited by Katharine Baetjer, Julie Jones, Elizabeth Mankin Kornhauser, and Luke Syson

The Metropolitan Museum Journal, issued annually by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, publishes original research on works in the Museum's collections and the areas of investigation they represent. The essays in this volume include a new analysis of Greek marble sculptures in the museum's collection, two articles on Tullio Lombardo's Adam, a case-study of lessons learned from scientific analysis of the Peiter Coecke van Aelst tapestry Gluttony, and a discussion of The Expulsion from Paradise by Charles Joseph Natoire, which was once owned by Honoré de Balzac.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Conservation Methods Bought this a few weeks ago and am so happy that I did. Very much enjoyed reading about the new conservation efforts learned in the museum's efforts to restore Tullio Lombardo's Adam statue. Visiting the Met from Louisiana, I missed seeing the statue go back on display by one week. Loved the Velez Blanco court and just happened to strike a conversation with the guard there about how the Adam statue fell and was near completion of its conservation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met Journal has Adam covered I happened to see Tullio Lombardo's Adam during one of my recent visits to t he Met and was struck by the beauty and presence of this magnificent sculpture. I stopped to see the video that briefly described the restoration process that ensued after Adam's fall in 2002. Putting Biblical irony aside, receiving this year's Journal contains a fascinating journey through the study, research and exacting work that enables us to see this masterpiece again. The other articles are equally intriguing and well-illustrated with high quality photographs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Restoration This volume describes in great detail how the statue of Adam was reintegrated and restored using every tool available to the museum. It is fascinating from several aspects including art, science, engineering and preservation. It's a great account of how thoroughly the statue was studied, assembled and beautifully restored, so that the breakage is not even visible, highlighting the great care the museum takes with the artworks it houses.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Book I did enjoy reading this book, especially the article about the restoration of Lombardo's Adam. It made for a good starting point for a discussion about representative art with my grand daughter. It is, however, overpriced in my opinion. I would not have purchased it were it not for my member's discount. If you could purchase it with a discount, I would recommend it to others.
