Description: Art Is...:

  • What is art? This engaging book from The Metropolitan Museum of Art offers nearly 200 illustrated answers to that question, all presented in simple, concise observations about selected works in the Museum's collection. For example, a Nigerian mask is symmetry, a Van Gogh still life is composition, a Babylonian lion is fierce, a Duccio portrait is tender. Reaching across all periods and media, from ancient statues to medieval tapestries to Baroque instruments to Impressionist paintings to contemporary costumes, the selected works gathered in this clever little book are sure to inspire both novice and seasoned art lovers.
