Intended as a resource for those who teach adults, this interactive publication invites you to examine visual aspects of painting that have engaged artists for centuries. Its thematic approach encourages you to step away from a chronological study and look at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection of European Paintings (ca. 1250–1900) from new perspectives.
