The Metropolitan Museum of Art Guide [Arabic Edition]

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

This completely reconceived and rewritten guide to the Metropolitan's encyclopedic holdings-the first new edition of the guidebook in nearly thirty years-provides the ideal introduction to almost 600 essential masterpieces from one of the world's most popular and beloved museums. It features a compelling and accessible design, beautiful color reproductions, and up-to-date descriptions written by the Museum's own experts. More than a simple souvenir book, The Metropolitan Museum of Art Guide provides a comprehensive view of art history spanning more than five millennia and the entire globe, beginning with the Ancient World and ending in contemporary times. It includes media as varied as painting, photography, costume, sculpture, decorative arts, musical instruments, arms and armor, works on paper, and many more.
