In Praise of Painting: Dutch Masterpieces At The Met
Now on  - Jun 21, 2022

The Met's collection has been a home for paintings of the Dutch Golden Age from the very beginning. In Praise of Painting brings together 67 thematically organized works by masters like Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Hals.

Focusing on the hot topics of 17th-century Dutch culture – religion, wealth and class, morality and mortality – the exhibition displays some of the greatest 17th-century Dutch paintings side by side.

Discover the meaning behind some of The Met's masterpieces as you pore over the fine details; wilted flowers, rotting fruit, and more skulls than a biker gang's leather collection. There's more to the Netherlands than cheese, but of course it gets a few mentions too!

A New Look at Old Masters - A Collection of European Paintings
Now on  - Jun 21, 2022

In preparation for the re-installation of The Met's European Paintings galleries in 2022, A New Look at Old Masters brings some of the museum's outstanding European works to the fore.

The exhibition is a thematic journey with fascinating new groupings and contrasts. Move from still life and genre painting in the 16th and 17th centuries, through a 300-year overview of oil sketches, the art of the Grand Siècle, French Neoclassical painting, and more.

Stand in the presence of masterpieces by the likes of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo and Peter Paul Rubens, and marvel at the depth of The Met's famous collection.

A New Look at Old Masters will explore a variety of themes in The Met's collection of European painting, creating new dialogues among the works and including a large presentation of sculpture.

While one gallery will highlight the creation of still life and genre painting in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, two others will provide an overview of oil sketches from the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries, leading up to the Museum's unsurpassed collection of works by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.

A large gallery will display portraiture in the Grand Siècle, juxtaposing outstanding paintings by Peter Paul Rubens and Anthony van Dyck with Charles Le Brun's monumental family portrait of the banker Everhard Jabach . The eighteenth-century French galleries will take up such themes as the study of expression, François Boucher and the decorative arts, and the role of female artists, who finally found a place in the academy.

The Met's unique collection of French Neoclassical painting, dominated by gifts from Jayne Wrightsman, will be installed with sculptured busts by Jean Antoine Houdon of the essential figures of the Enlightenment: Denis Diderot and Voltaire. These are just a few examples of the novel themes that will be on display.

Goya’s Graphic Imagination
Now on  - May 2, 2021

Considered both the last of the Old Masters and a pioneer of modern art, Francisco Goya was prolific in his output of drawings and prints throughout a career that spanned six decades.

The Met's Goya’s Graphic Imagination features over 100 works, chronicling his creative evolution and artistic approach. The exhibit considers the way in which Goya expressed his perception of a volatile and changing world, with highlights including the striking and controversial Seated Giant, as well as works loaned from New York, Boston, and Madrid.

Wonderful, but I felt it was a little too crowded at the Jacob Lawrence exhibit and was very difficult to social distance. I understand that with the mask requirement, you may feel that control of the crowd was not necessary, but I would think twice about visiting a special exhibit in the future though I loved the exhibit. It was one I will remember for a lifetime.
