Joseph Cornell's life was changed forever by a chance encounter with Juan Gris's The Man at the Café collage. This mysterious profile of a sitting man was to influence Cornell's output for the next 15 years, and this new exhibition brings together all facets of his long-term artistic homage, with a special collection of avant-garde shadow boxes, collages and sand trays.
English-born Thomas Cole rose to become one of the most celebrated landscape painters in American history. To mark the 200th anniversary of Cole's first Atlantic crossing, the Met's new exhibition collates many of his greatest paintings, showing how his techniques developed over the years, and exploring the ongoing dialogue between representations of Europe and America.
This career-spanning retrospective charts the life and work of one of the 20th Century's fiercest artistic talents. Known for his uncompromisingly raw style, Golub mixed expressionism with classical influences to relentlessly fight for social justice. Raw Nerve captures this spirit with an extensive collection of incendiary sketches and paintings, as well as his terrifyingly huge masterpiece Gigantomachy II.

Real New Yorkers, passionate art lovers, and tourists in the know all have The Metropolitan Museum of Art high on their list. That's because it's one of the premier museums in the world, and brilliantly organized by theme, so you can focus on the areas you're keen on.
Highlights include the European Paintings area with works from El Greco, Rembrandt, Raphael, van Gogh, and many many more. The Temple of Dendur, a full-sized Egyptian temple donated by Jackie Kennedy (with a view of it through the museum’s glass roof from her apartment) is a spectacular feature of the extensive Egyptian collection.
The Period Rooms are another must-see, with original (or lovingly recreated) examples of interior design throughout the ages. Including a grand salon of Louis XIV, an ancient Roman bedroom buried by the eruption of Vesuvius, fixtures from colonial American homes, and more.
The Egyptian Collection is another hit with all ages. Miniature statues, mummy cases, and even a temple to the goddess Isis.
These are, of course, just suggestions. Wander the collections at your own pace, soaking up the history and wonder.
David Hockney (27 November 2017 - 26 February 2018)
Over his 60-year career, David Hockney has single-handedly revolutionized the world of painting, bringing his trademark wit and playfulness to any subject he touches. To celebrate his 80th birthday, The Met has assembled his most iconic paintings alongside his forays into photography and video to present a far-reaching retrospective of this legendary talent.
NOTE: The Met's main location is Fifth Avenue. The nearby (10-minute walk) Met Breuer focuses on art of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Met Cloisters is farther afield - in Washington Heights' Fort Tryon Park. It showcases medieval European art in religious buildings, transported here piece by piece from Europe.
