'Big, bold and interesting.' - The Art Newspaper

A fresh and unconventional approach to exploring 6,000 years of art history through 800 masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Featuring more than 800 artworks from the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, this groundbreaking book - organized by thematic keywords rather than the usual chronological or geographical categories, and drawing upon analytics from The Met's online Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History - offers fresh, unconventional ways of engaging with visual culture. Beyond the wealth of illustration, more than 160 engaging curatorial essays place the works in wider contexts, while a foldout, detachable timeline offers further perspective.

Reviews

'takes us on an extraordinary journey through 6,000 years of art history at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Spread by double-page spread, it throws out themes with reckless abandon, and then takes us across a multiplicity of two- and three-dimensional objects from the museum’s multifarious collections, connecting this with that in a  perpetual journey of fascinating cultural interweavings' - Hyperallergic
