Published to celebrate the Museum's 150th anniversary, this book examines the institution's evolution from an idea-that art can elevate anyone who has access to it-to one of the most beloved encyclopaedic collections in the world. Focusing on key transformational moments, this richly illustrated book provides insight into events that led the Met in new directions, broadened its audience, and expanded its collection. Illustrations include rarely seen archival and behind-the-scenes images, in addition to more than 200 key works that changed the way we look at art.
