Virtual Tour of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
The Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York City, colloquially “the Met,” is the largest art museum in the United States.
Its permanent collection contains over 2 million works, divided among 17 curatorial departments.
The museum is home to encyclopedic collections of musical instruments, costumes, and accessories, as well as antique weapons and armor from around the world. Several notable interiors, ranging from 1st-century Rome through modern American design, are installed in its galleries.
What’s next? Art Trends that will move the Art World Forward
When the editors of ARTnews first endeavored on the project of foreseeing the Next Big Things to prove significant around the art world, the future had a different cast to it than would soon be the case when the coronavirus crisis struck. But the future is always in flux—and thus always suited for the exercise of conjecture and imagination.
In consultation with art world professionals—artists, dealers, curators, museum administrators—we identified dynamics and ideas on the horizon, some with trajectories tracing into the past, others more sudden in origination. What follows is a survey of that horizon as presented in the Summer 2020 issue of ARTnews.
Some Wonderful Words From Our Artlovers
The best part of WLA is watching our Artlovers unleash their inner artists and leave us speechless. So it is time to show off what our community is creating all around the world.
ArtLovers Quote Of The Week
”For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.” -Vincent Van Gogh
We Love Art Painting of The Week
Girl with a Pearl Earring is an oil painting by Dutch Golden Age painter Johannes Vermeer, dated 1665. It depicts a European girl in an oriental turban, and an improbably large pearl earring.
Often Girl with a Pearl Earring is referred to as the “Mona Lisa of the North.” This is partially because of the girl’s curious expression, and in part because of the mystery surrounding the piece itself.
In 2006, the Dutch public selected it as the most beautiful painting in the Netherlands.
