Metropolitan Museum, Part 12 Arts of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia
ven. 11 janvier 2019 à 17:00
This week we'll visit Galleries[masked] The Met's collection of Islamic art ranges in date from the 7th to the 19th century. Its nearly 12,000 objects reflect the great diversity and range of the cultural traditions of Islam, with works from as far westward as Spain and Morocco and as far eastward as Central Asia and India. Comprising sacred and secular objects, the collection reveals the mutual influence of artistic practices such as calligraphy, and the exchange of motifs such as vegetal ornament (the arabesque) and geometric patterning in both realms. See pottery, carpets and textiles, jeweled arts, calligraphy, painting, and architectural elements. Learn about the styles, themes, and motifs that separate them from Western art. *** COMING UP: Ancient Near Eastern Art (17 Jan 2019)[masked]

American Wing[masked] was closed on Oct. 20 ...to be rescheduled We'll learn as we go. What is repoussé? What does it mean when silver is chased? What's a bequest? What are accession numbers? We'll also learn about the physical building and the restoration department. PRICE: $7 per event As always, we'll have lunch together as a group at the end of our walk.
