Quantcast
My Met—Keith Christiansen

Speaker:
Keith Christiansen, John Pope-Hennessy Chairman, Department of European Paintings, The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Why do we respond to some works of art at first encounter while others remain elusive, revealing themselves to us only slowly, over time? Keith Christiansen discusses some of the pictures that have meant the most to him as well as those he has come to love. He also talks about the comprehensive reinstallation of the European paintings collection that was recently inaugurated, as well as some important acquisitions that he thinks have taken the collection—and him—in a new direction.
