European Paintings in the Metropolitan Museum of Art: A Walking Guide (Paperback)Keith Christiansen (editor), Katharine Baetjer (editor)
Paperback Published: 28/08/2013
The Metropolitan Museum of Art holds one of the most significant and best-known collections of European paintings in the world. The second of Scala's Walking Guide series with the Metropolitan, this handy, fully illustrated book provides an accessible walking tour of the newly expanded galleries of Old Masters and 19th-century European paintings at the Museum, reopening to the public in their entirety in May 2013. Visits to the Old Master galleries include northern European painting from Van Eyck to Reynolds; Italian Renaissance, from Giotto to Titian; Italian Baroque, from Caravaggio to Tiepolo; and French and Spanish painting from Poussin to Goya. Nineteenth-century visits include northern European painting from Ingres to Turner and two itineraries featuring impressionism and its precursors through post-impressionism, from Courbet, Manet, and Degas to Monet to Picasso. Each tour is presented via maps (with room numbers), cogent descriptions, and helpful landmarks to orient the visitor through the galleries of one of the most celebrated and popular areas of the Metropolitan.
