Quantcast
Making the Exhibition - The Philippe de Montebello Years - A Scholars' Day Workshop with Introduction by Helen Evans

The acquisition of works of art is central to the Metropolitan Museum's mission, and was a hallmark of Philippe de Montebello's tenure as director. In conjunction with the exhibition The Philippe de Montebello Years, this series of lectures and panel discussions celebrates the impressive additions to the Museum collections made under Mr. de Montebello's esteemed directorship.

Helen C. Evans, coordinating curator of the exhibition The Philippe de Montebello Years, talks about how the exhibition was conceived and organized. The exhibition, a group effort by Museum curators, takes visitors through the history of the Met's acquisitions, but also offers a provocative look at the community behind the collecting practice.

Organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Center for the History of Collecting in America at The Frick Collection

Helen C. Evans, Mary and Michael Jaharis Curator of Byzantine Art, Department of Medieval Art
