The Department of Drawings and Prints Drue Heinz Chair George Goldner's Collecting at the Met

After twenty-one years at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, curator George Goldner is retiring. He began his career at the Getty Museum in 1979, and came to the Met in 1993 when then–Metropolitan Museum Director Philippe de Montebello hired him to be the Drue Heinz Chairman of the Department of Drawings and Prints. In this video, Goldner discusses the challenges he faced as he dedicated himself to strengthening his department's holdings of works on paper from Europe and the Americas, dating from about 1370 to the present, so that all important periods and schools would be well represented.
