Quantcast
American Collecting - The Philippe de Montebello Years - A Scholars' Day Workshop with Introduction by Inge Reist

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.

In the galleries of the exhibition, Inge Reist--who worked with Helen Evans, the exhibition's coordinating curator--introduces the idea that "American collecting" bridges personal collecting, and acquisition for the sole purpose of donation and public display. In the exhibitions galleries, considering featured works of art, curators speak about the relationships between institutions and donors.

Inge Reist, Director of the Center for the History of Collecting in America, the Frick Art Reference Library

This event was organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Center for the History of Collecting in America at The Frick Collection.
