An ?intriguing? oral portrait of the people behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Entertainment Weekly) Using more than fifty interviews, award-winning writer Danny Danziger creates a fascinating mosaic of the people behind New York?s magnificent Metropolitan Museum of Art. From the aristocratic, acerbic director of the museum, Philippe de Montebello, to the curators who have a deep knowledge and passionate appreciation of their collections, from the security guards to the philanthropists who keep the museum?s financial life blood flowing, Danziger brings to life this extraordinary world through the words of those who are devoted to making the Met the American institution it surely is.

This handsome volume presents an overview of the collection and provides an informative walk through the American Wing{u2019}s richly furnished period rooms and stunning architectural displays. These include the magnificent marble fa├žade of the Branch Bank of the United States{u2014}the entrance to the original American Wing when it opened in 1924{u2014}and the restored living room of a Frank Lloyd Wright prairie-style house. The comprehensive survey of paintings and sculpture begins with early colonial portraiture and from there follows the emergence and development of a national fine-arts tradition, including significant movements and genres such as the Hudson River School, neoclassical sculpture, and American Impressionism. -- Metropolitan Museum of Art website.

American Sculpture in the Metropolitan Museum of Art: A catalogue of works by artists born before 1865

This publication, the first of two volumes, presents a definitive new catalogue of the Metropolitan Museum's distinguished collection of American sculpture. The Museum's holdings accurately document the history of American sculpture and its development as a profession, from the artists who lived in Italy and carved in marble and those who studied in Paris and cast in bronze, to those who worked only in the U.S. and were pioneers in the techniques of their arts. It begins with an introduction to the history of the collection, and includes a summary biography of each of the 61 sculptors. The entries for each of the 198 objects incorporate the most up-to-date scholarship as well as documentation from the archival material at the Museum. Contains 227 illustrations, 29 of which are in color.
