This is a revised edition of the guide to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The guide describes the museum's vast collections and its buildings, including the Cloisters, and includes nearly 900 works of art from the museum's 18 curatorial departments, selected by the director of the museum, Philippe de Montebello. The works of art illustrated in the book range from the art of the ancient world to that of the present day. The concise format of the guide, its informative text and many illustrations, make it a handy companion to those visiting the museum, and a useful addition to the art-lover's library.
