Description

By Peter Barnet and Nancy Wu

Home to an extraordinary collection of treasured masterworks, including the famed Unicorn Tapestries, The Cloisters is devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. This splendid new guide, published to celebrate The Cloisters' seventy-fifth anniversary, richly illustrates and describes the most important highlights of its collection, from paintings, illuminated manuscripts, and exquisitely carved ivories to its monumental architecture evocative of the grand religious spaces and domestic interiors of the Middle Ages. The Cloisters remains a testament to design innovation—a New York City landmark with sweeping views of the Hudson River—featuring original elements of Romanesque and Gothic architecture dating from the twelfth through the fifteenth century. Three of the structures enclose beautiful gardens cultivated with species known from tapestries, medieval herbals, and other historic sources. These exotic spaces, the art masterpieces, and the fragrant plants offer visitors an oasis of serenity and inspiration. This book both encapsulates and enhances that experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from +A Walk Through the Cloisters I had purchased this book some years ago while at University of Wisconsin - Madison, and was not able to visit the Cloisters later, upon finishing my degree in Art History. I loved this book, as did my Father, and that book, too, was in a smaller format. I am anxious to purchase the newer edition. What a jewel box of a museum -- one of the loveliest days I have ever spent in New York -- much less museums. Will never, ever forget the experience, and the book enhanced the visit, brings back so very much!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Cloisters A big box for a little book A lovely book, I seem to remember the copy I saw at The Cloisters was bigger size.Perhaps that was a different(older) edition I am wondering why such a small format book was sent to me in such a large box with way too muchpackaging around it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Presented! Excellent way for mom to enjoy The Cloisters when she is not able to visit in person.
