Quantcast
The Philippe de Montebello Years - A Scholars' Day Workshop with Comments from Director Emeritus Philippe de Montebello

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.

Director Emeritus Philippe de Montebello discusses art collecting in America, and how it has affected the collections of museums like the Met.

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