This book provides a unique view of the treasures contained within New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Feel the lure of Ancient Egypt through the half-acre Temple of Dendur and a diminutive cat coffin. Tour the Greek and Roman galleries and see the famous Euphronios Krater. In the wing devoted to Africa, Oceania and the Americas can be found two exquisite masks - one carved in ivory from Benin and the other in jade from Olmec. In the European and American painting collections, see such highlights as Botticelli's ANNUNCIATION, Rembrandt's ARISTOTLE WITH A BUST OF HOMER and Manet's BOATING. The 20th century is also well-represented, with works by Picasso, Matisse, Hopper and many others. Superb drawings, prints, photographs and other works of the decorative arts - as well as examples of haute couture from the Costume Institute - round out this comprehensive book and provide an irresistable picture of a great art museum.
