9781857597844: The Cleveland Museum of Art: Director's Choice

This publication is part of the Director's Choice series and is a unique selection by the director of the Museum

The Cleveland Museum of Art is a personal and engaging guide with a unique approach to the works in one of the most important collections in the world.

The word "museum" comes from the Greek word for a temple dedicated to the muses: history, astronomy, dance, music, comedy, tragedy, and lyric, epic, and religious poetry. Each of these muses is in evidence at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Few public collections can boast Cleveland's concentration of quality, rarity, and worldwide renown. Dedicated in 1916 "for the benefit of all the people forever," the museum is home to a constellation of masterpieces - works that define their medium, that define our experience of art.

In The Cleveland Museum of Art new director David Franklin offers a personal tour of some of his favorite objects, selected from holdings that span 6,000 years of artistic achievement. Each entry offers a reflection on the work of art, explaining why it is one of his highlights.

Works featured include Caravaggio's The Crucifixion of Saint Andrew, Rembrandt's The Blindness of Tobit: The Larger Plate, Degas' Angel Blowing a Trumpet, Van Gogh's Adeline Ravoux, and Bonnard's The Dessert.
