Prague : the Crown of Bohemia, 1347-1437 by N.Y.) Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York( Book )

24 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prague, The Crown of Bohemia, 1347-1437, the companion to a landmark exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, celebrates the remarkable flowering of art that took place in Prague as the city emerged as a European cultural capital. In essays and entries on works of art drawn from Czech, other European, and American collections, an esteemed group of scholars elucidate this compelling chapter in European history. Among the nearly 200 objects are paintings, including panels by Master Theodoric from the Holy Cross Chapel at Karlstejn Castle; goldsmiths' work from Saint Vitus's Cathedral that has not been exhibited for decades; sculpture; drawings, including an artist's model book with its original carrying case; stained glass; embroideries from ecclesiastical vestments; and illuminated manuscripts from the personal collection of Wenceslas IV. These precious objects bear witness to the achievements of the hundreds of artists trained and active in Prague and its rulers' dominions during this spectacular century."--Jacket
Mirror of the medieval world by William D Wixom( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Highlighted in these pages - and in an accompanying exhibition that allows the public to savor many of the works at first hand - are more than 300 purchases and gifts. Although a great majority of the objects have been on view and have figured in various Metropolitan Museum publications over the last two decades, many works have remained unpublished until now. Following a Foreword by the Director, the Introduction by William D. Wixom provides an overview of the enrichment of the collections under his stewardship. The reader then discovers how lacunae were filled, as highly significant examples of the art of the Middle Ages took their place among others with equally impressive provenances." "For those unaware of the richness and quality of the medieval treasures available for edification and enjoyment in New York's foremost museum, this volume offers an exciting introduction; for students and scholars of medieval art, it presents the opportunity to take an armchair tour of old favorites encountered on past visits to the Metropolitan's galleries and to become acquainted with the many splendid additions."--Jacket
Eternal ancestors : the art of the Central African reliquary by Alisa LaGamma( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jerusalem, 1000-1400 : every people under heaven by N.Y.) Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York( Book )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Medieval Jerusalem was a vibrant international center and home to multiple cultures, faiths, and languages. Harmonious and dissonant influences from Persian, Turkish, Greek, Syrian, Armenian, Georgian, Coptic, Ethiopian, Indian, and European traditions gave Jerusalem a key role in shaping art produced for both secular and religious purposes. Patrons and artists from Christian, Jewish, and Islamic traditions alike focused their attention on the Holy City, endowing and enriching its sacred buildings and creating luxury goods for its residents. This artistic fertility was particularly in evidence between the 11th and 14th centuries, notwithstanding often devastating circumstances--from the earthquake of 1033 to the fierce battles of the Crusades. So strong a magnet was Jerusalem that it drew out the creative imagination of even those separated from it by great distance. Through compelling essays and focused discussions of more than 200 works of art, Jerusalem, 1000-1400 breaks new ground in exploring the relationship between the historical and the archetypal city of Jerusalem and uncovers the way in which the aesthetic achievements it inspired enhanced and enlivened the medieval world." - Published in conjunction with "Jerusalem, 1000 - 1400 : Every people under heaven" on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, from September 26, 2016, through January 8, 2017
Heavenly bodies : fashion and the Catholic imagination by Andrew Bolton( Book )

21 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since antiquity, religious beliefs and practices have inspired many of the world's greatest works of art. These masterworks have, in turn, fueled the imaginations of fashion designers in the 20th and 21st centuries, yielding some of the most innovative creations in the history of fashion. 'Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination' explores fashion's complex and often controversial relationship with Catholicism by examining the role of spirituality and religion in contemporary culture. This two-volume publication connects significant religious art and artifacts to their sartorial expressions. Volume one features images of rarely seen objects from the Vatican - ecclesiastical garments and accessories. Volume two focuses on fashions by designers such as Cristobal Balenciaga, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Madame Grés, Christian Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld, Jeanne Lanvin, Claire McCardell, Thierry Mugler, Elsa Schiaparelli, and Gianni Versace. Essays by art historians and leading religious authorities provide perspective on how dress manifests, or subverts, Catholic values and ideology."--Publisher's website
Choirs of angels : painting in Italian choir books, 1300-1500 by Barbara Drake Boehm( Book )

17 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book describes and illustrates the Metropolitan Museum's collection of nearly 40 illuminations from Italian choral manuscripts. Representing the work of Gothic and Renaissance masters both celebrated and anonymous, these precious paintings in miniature - with their compelling narrative, brilliant color, and shining gold - bear witness to exceptional aesthetic accomplishment. The choir books they illuminate are a rich source of information about the development of chant, whose unexpected transcendent tonalities have abiding appeal today. They also serve as primary sources for the study of the lives of religious communities and of the philosophy and faith that infused medieval Europe, offering a glimpse of Italy at the dawn of the Renaissance."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published to celebrate the Museum's 150th anniversary, 'Making The Met' examines the institution's evolution from an idea-that art can elevate anyone who has access to it-to one of the most beloved encyclopedic 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. Eleven chapters illuminate topics such as the impact of momentous acquisitions, the global cooperation that resulted from international excavations, the Museum's association with the "Monuments Men" and its role in preserving cultural heritage during and after the Second World War, and The Met's interaction with modern and contemporary art and artists. 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. The final chapter considers contemporary philosophies for collecting art from around the globe, strategies for reaching new and diverse audiences, and the role of museums today.

"During a 19th century renovation of a confectioner's shop in the town of Colmar, France, workers chanced upon a precious hoard of medieval jewelry and coins hidden in a wall. The cache - known as the Colmar Treasure - is thought to have been concealed by a Jewish family prior to the outbreak of the Plague in 1348, when Jews across the region were tragically scapegoated and put to violent death. This exquisite volume, published to accompany an exhibition at The Met Cloisters, examines their legacy through the lens of the Colmar treasure, shedding light on what it reveals about the work, homes, worship and values of its owners"--

Painting and illumination in early Renaissance Florence, 1300-1450 by Laurence B Kanter( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don Lorenzo eventually left the monastery to operate a secular workshop that became an important force in the early-fifteenth-century Florentine art world, producing lavish illuminated manuscripts in addition to frescoes, altarpieces, and numerous pictures for a growing domestic market. One of Don Lorenzo's greatest legacies may have been the training of Fra Angelico, a Dominican monk and a painter of surpassing genius, who is in large part responsible for the evolution of a truly Renaissance style in the visual arts. The innovative naturalism of Angelico and his followers effectively brings to a close the great age of illumination in Early Renaissance Florence
