THE ART GUIDE: New York


THE ART GUIDE: New York

MORGAN FALCONER    Book Number: 79485    Product format: Paperback

New York City, among its many attractions, offers an unrivalled range of the world's art in museums and galleries. However, the problem with such a large number of premises exhibiting so much art is that one really needs to see all of a certain genre, ideally in a day. This is the reasoning that frames the unique layout of this inspired book. Let's say you are a fan of French art. Instead of being arranged by location, the book is arranged by country, style or artist, so will take you to, for instance, the Metropolitan Museum for starters with their collections by Poussin and Courbert, then on to the Frick Collection to see their Rococo works by Boucher and Fragonard and then the Dahesh Museum of Art to view pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries - not forgetting the biggest French piece of all, the Statue of Liberty in New York Bay! You can do the same with Italian, Spanish, English, US, German and Low Countries and Hispanic, Ancient Egyptian and Middle Eastern, Ancient Greek and Roman, Asian, European Medieval, African and more, then the different genres and best known practitioners of Modern Art including Picasso, Matisse, Hopper, Pollock and Warhol. You also have the option of using the book as a tradition guide to museums, with a reference section that features the locations, over 60 in all, with maps. Over 140 colour reproductions. 240pp softback.
