Travel with the Met: Russian Impressions

Posted on Tuesday, July 2, 2013, by Vanessa Hagerbaumer

I'm back in New York, and I've had a chance to reflect on my first Travel with the Met experience. The trip was truly unforgettable, thanks in part to the hospitality and humor of our Russian hosts and the stoic pride they take in their country.

Living in Style: Five Centuries of Interior Design from the Collection of Drawings and Prints

Posted on Monday, July 1, 2013, by Femke Speelberg

Now on view (through September 8), the exhibition Living in Style brings together drawings, prints, books, and pieces of furniture from the Museum's collections to illustrate five centuries of interior design, from the Renaissance period through the 1960s. Following a chronological path of development, the show traces changes and continuities in the approach to materials, shapes, colors, and decorations as displayed by the works on paper.
