Incorporating work from all periods and geographical areas, this is an introduction to the many collections in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. From Ancient Egypt comes the Temple of Dendur and a small cat-coffin; the renowned Euphronios krater helps to represent Greece and Rome; and two exquisite masks come from the Africa, Oceania and Americas wing. The painting section contains highlights such as Botticelli's "Annunciation", Titian's "Mars and Venus", Brueghel's "Harvesters", Rembrandt's "Aristotle", David's "Death of Socrates", Manet's "Boating", a Cezanne still-life and Gauguin's "La Orana Maria". The 20th century is well-represented, with works by Picasso, Matisse, Kandinsky, Brancusi, Giacometti and Hopper among many others. The book also includes drawings, prints, photographs and the decorative arts.
