Description

By Thomas P. Campbell

The director of the Metropolitan acts as your personal tour guide through one of the world's most renowned and encyclopedic collections of art. Developed from the museum's immensely popular audio tour, this cleverly designed and richly illustrated publication provides an essential list of Visitors' Favorites, as well as a guide to over fifty masterpieces and where they can be found on the first and second floors of the museum. Highlights include the Temple of Dendur from Upper Egypt, an exquisitely preserved room from Boscoreale, near Pompeii, majestic Assyrian Reliefs, Rembrandt's Aristotle with a Bust of Homer, the Hall of Arms and Armor, the exquisite ivory Queen Mother Pendant Mask from Benin, Africa, Emanuel Leutze's Washington Crossing the Delaware, and Van Gogh's Wheat Field with Cypresses, among countless others.

This handy book is intended to be used in the galleries, at home to plan for future visits, or as an illustrated introduction to some of the most memorable and remarkable works, created over five centuries and from cultures across the globe, housed in this celebrated museum.
