An entirely new approach to exploring global art history, presented through the lens of one of the world’s leading art museums
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 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 foldout, detachable timeline offers further perspective.
