6,000 Years = 900 Artworks From the Met


The Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art


Exploring 6,000 years of art through almost 900 works from the Met’s collection, this magnificent tome shows how artists from different eras and places have explored common themes and inspired one another. Flowers, for example, have been seen in art for millennia, from Tutankhamun and the Dutch Golden Age to Van Gogh’s studies and Georgia O’Keeffe’s close-ups. Accompanying the illustrations are 160 essays by the museum’s experts, leading you on your own personal tour through the world-renowned collection.
