Farewell PDM

The exhibition, Philippe de Montebello: Curators Celebrate Three Decades of Acquisitions, ended today. To honor the now former director and highlight his incredible contribution to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, curators from every department collaborated to show the grandest of the 84,000 works acquired during his tenure.

Like Shigeyuki Kihara, I had planned on revisiting this exhibition much sooner — but there is just too much to see at the Met! I did take the time today, however, to fully absorb the breadth and importance of this show. Widely acclaimed for its unique blend of pieces from different cultures, time periods, and media, the exhibition is truly an unparalleled experience with some of the greatest highlights of art history.
