The art at the Met reaches across the globe, so we wanted to start providing our collection information in some of the many languages represented by these cultures. Our new web feature One Met. Many Worlds. brings you more than five hundred collection highlights in eleven languages: English, Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
Details of individual works of art also link you to universal themes and concepts (mythical, spontaneous, pure) so that you can explore connections between works in our collection. It is a feature that invites you to look, reflect, and respond by posting your own ideas.
I look forward to seeing how our collection inspires you.
