Met Museum Preview The New European Paintings Galleries

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s galleries for its world-renowned collection of European Old Master paintings from the 13th through the early 19th century will reopen on May 23 after an extensive renovation and reinstallation. This is the first major renovation of the galleries since 1951 and the first major reinstallation of the collection since 1972. Gallery space has increased by almost one third, making it possible to display more than 600 paintings from the collection and giving the entire floor of galleries a grandeur not seen in half a century.  The reinstallation also captures historical crosscurrents between countries and contacts between artists by placing them in adjoining rooms. The Metropolitan Museum’s collection of early Netherlandish, Italian, and French paintings is wide–ranging and includes landmark pictures, while its collection of Dutch school paintings must be counted among the finest in the world. As for individual artists, the representation of Rembrandt, Rubens, Vermeer, Poussin, Velázquez, Goya, and David is the strongest in the western hemisphere, and there are individual masterpieces known to every student of art history, such as Bruegel’s The Harvesters and David’s The Death of Socrates. Key works have been cleaned, conserved, or reframed, and important new loans complement the collection.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street, New York, NY 10028.
